Mending Matters

Sunday | January 13, 2019 | 1:00 pm — 3:00 pm

Berkeley Rose Waldorf School | 2515 Hillegass Ave, Berkeley, CA 94704

Mending is a meditative and slow-paced activity to soothe our often-busy lives.

This workshop will allow mending beginners to learn the basics and continuing menders to hone their skills and add new embroidery stitches to their repertoire. You will work with the Japanese techniques of visible mending and patching to repair worn clothing and make it ever more personal.

A variety of fabrics and threads will be provided to use for your work during the hands-on portion of the workshop. This workshop will also cover repair of buttonholes, replacement of buttons, darning of socks, and begin to repair knits. You are welcome to bring a beloved item of clothing that needs to be mended to lengthen its life. If you have a sewing kit, do bring it: scissors, needles, pins, cloth scraps welcome as well.

Instructor Biography: Judith has taught handwork for many years, both at the East Bay Waldorf School and independently. She teaches pine needle basketry, tapestry weaving, and the art of Boro.
