What’s it all about?
Do you have a pile of clothing that is looking the worst for wear? Bring along your mending for Tamara to assist you to repair with the techniques you have learnt in my Fix Your Clothes and Fix Your Woollens workshops.
Stitching is a great life skill which can save you money, save your clothes and reduce your impact on the environment! We will work together to use the best techniques to repair your clothes with Tamara offering creative possibilities for repairing & enhancing your clothes and household textiles.
What will we cover?
We will begin with a show and tell of items brought along and discuss options for mending them. Then it will be time for you to get creative, repairing, applying beautiful darning, stitching and/or patching to your clothes.
The workshop is suitable for both beginners and more experienced stitchers who have completed my Fix Your Clothes and Fix Your Woollens workshops.
What to bring:
- Your clothes, woollens and/ or household textiles that have stains, rips or holes that need repairing
- Feel free to bring any fabric, thread or embellishments you may like to add too
- And most importantly bring your imagination and enthusiasm!
- All required materials including, a selection of fabric for patching, darning tools and a range of wool yarn and needle felting tools and wool fibre
