Join Ilka White for a one-day workshop that honours those skills and adds a contemporary twist to patching and darning your favourite textiles. Mending can become an opportunity for wonderful decoration,alongside saving money and reducing landfill. Earn yourself some serious sustainability street cred on the quest for zero waste! Some tools and materials will be provided. Bring along your own worn clothes and home cloths for a special dose of creative TLC.

09 May 2019 • Darn it! - Mending and upcycling with Ilka White

What a wonderful workshop! Ilka was a great teacher, very professional -she was organised with materials, handouts, explanations on the board, demonstrations and problem solving. It was a relaxed atmosphere and she was more than happy to go over a technique again if we didn’t understand the first time around. The venue was ideal- clean, spacious and well located with easy access to cafes and nature during lunch break. Thank you for a great day!
