Restoration London presents Online Visible Mending sessions! Introducing you to the traditional Visible Mending technique – Darning!

About this event

Darning mending

Darning is a sewing technique, traditionally for repairing holes or worn areas in woven or knitted clothing, using needle and thread alone – repaired by hand.

Come join us for our Monthly Mending sessions, introducing you to the beautiful techniques of Visible Mending – Darning wherever you are in the world!

Our workshops are inclusive and suitable for complete beginners.

You will be given an introduction in to the traditional mending technique of Darning, where you can practise on knitted fabrics beforehand or perhaps darn directly on to your knitwear to fix any holes and create beautiful visible mending designs.

This will be a hand sewing class, so no need to be a pro on the sewing machine! This means you will be able to learn the techniques and continue to fix your clothing in the comfort of your own home!

You will leave the workshop feeling inspired to continue fixing and rejuvenating all of your favourite pieces that need a bit of TLC or even if you just want to customise your lovely jumpers to make them a bit more exciting.
