Want to join in the Make Do & Mend revolution?
Want to learn how to mend and repair your garments to extend their life and reduce environmental impact?
In this Masterclass you will learn all the basics you need to gain an understanding of mending, be able to look and asses garments and know what will be the most appropriate way to tackle each mend that crosses your path!
As no two mends are the same you will also get to see the variety of different techniques and solutions for all the mending jobs brought in by the rest of the class!
First up we will cover some of the basics of mending, learn how to identify different fabrics and what techniques work best for different kinds of fabrics and damage. We will sample some delicate mending, patching, visible mending and darning.
After we have the basics covered, we will go 'round table' style assessing each garment everyone has brought in for mending, to troubleshoot each individual problem and decide the best solution for that unique mend! Learn from everyone else's mending projects in the class as we spend the rest of the time fixing all your mending, with my guidance!
