Creative Mending Workshop

24 May 2024
7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Learn felt patch making – one of the many ways to repair clothes making them even better than before.

A great way for all comers – from beginners to experts. In this fun, colourful visible mending workshop, artist Anna Chapman- Andrews will take you through a few examples before choosing a design, colour palette and techniques – from felting to embroidery – which you’ll use to make your own embroidered felt patch. All abilities welcome: no sewing skill needed. You will leave with your new patch, plus a bundle of resources, illustrated instructions and inspiration to continue making – and mending! – at home.

With expert guidance, enthusiastic support and your own creative courage, add beauty to your existing belongings and give them a whole new lease of life.

This will be a very relaxed workshop, suitable for all abilities.

Duration of workshop 2 hours

What’s included? All materials will be provided but if you would prefer to bring your own sewing kit and crewel/ embroidery threads, please feel free to do so. Tea and coffee will be available.

Suitable for 16 years old and above.

Note: The workshop space is accessible via lift. If you have any access needs please let us know so we can support you in any way possible.

About the artist:

Anna has been making and mending for as long as she can remember: learning about saws and soldering irons at her father’s knee; then as a fine art and ceramics scholar, before life aboard her first houseboat cemented her passion for creating, repairing and making do.

“Visible mending builds on the idea of functional repair to extend the life of a broken object while exploring our creativity and ingenuity, inviting us to love what we have anew through a satisfying process of repairing our belongings.”

Anna is also in the process of creating Love Makers Craft Cafe – follow along at @lovemakerscafe
