January’s theme at Art From Scrap is everyday reuse and our adult art workshop is all about mending clothes. Kolby Holdsworth of Dire Woof repairs and reworks items to keep them out of the waste stream, doing repairs of pants to down jackets. Learn how to patch, and fix garments so you never have to say goodbye to a favorite pair of jeans because of a rip in the knee again.
In this workshop Kolby will guide attendees through basic hand mending techniques like adding a patch to a torn item as well as mending with a sewing machine. You can bring your own item to repair during the workshop and learn skills to repair clothes and lengthen their lifecycle. Please note the guides for what kind of items to bring to class.
This workshop will include two hours of instruction, access to sewing machines, and all materials necessary to patch an article of clothing.
Please bring one ripped or torn item of clothing to be repaired during the workshop. Items made out of woven materials such as canvas, denim, linen and cotton are ideal. Thicker fabric generally holds up better to repairs. Please do not bring stretchy items made of knit fabric such as leggings. Have a question on what will/ won’t work?
