Nordic Craft Workshop: Visible Mending by Hand with Maddy Bartsch

Saturday, August 3, 2019 - 9:00am to 12:00pm

Pick up a needle and thread and get ready to enter the world of visible mending, where your stitches add new design elements, as unique as your handwriting, to well-loved garments. Maddy Bartsch of the Three Rivers Fibershed will be your guide to this old-is-new practice. Like traditional mending, visual mending can extend the life of your garments and reduce your carbon, waste and water footprint by up to 20-30%!

In this class you will learn about visual mending techniques, the basics of necessary stitches, and then try it out to patch, reinforce and add stitches to a garment you bring to class. Whether you are extending the life of a favorite pair of pants, or hoping to recreate a thrift store find into a unique piece all your own, the techniques shared will help you strengthen and beautify your closet. No experience is necessary, and all specialty materials will be provided. Open to students age 13 and up.

An additional $10 materials fee is payable to the instructor.
