04 Jan Mending Circle
Phoebe and I prefer to source second-hand, and thrifted clothes as much as possible, and also make our own garments and accessories. We both know that fashion can be a source of creative inspiration, but as a global industry, it’s also a huge source of pollution and waste. As big believers in extending the life of our existing clothing and home goods, we’ll encourage participants to bring their old clothes or other fabric / fiber based items that need a little love to sustain their usefulness.
We can take 12 students, and there will not be a materials fee. We’ll supply a variety of thread, needles, yarn, embroidery floss, fabric and mending inspirations. If participants don’t have their own items to mend, we’ll help them create an adorned patch to use at a later date. We’ll encourage sharing and storytelling as we work together to extend the lives of our beloved garments and goods.
Mending Circle will be taught be Laura Whipple and Phoebe Whipple.
