    Courses description

    This workshop is suitable for all levels including beginners. The day will provide an in-depth look at visible mending techniques, from basic principles to exploring a wide range of creative techniques for repairing and enhancing garments, whether it’s developing confidence in a few of the fundamental stitches or, for the more confident, exploring decorative pattern making with embroidery and yarn. A great way to get you started with sustainable fashion, mending items you previously would have not kept, celebrating their imperfections and creating completely individual clothing. Techniques covered include embroidery, applique, darning, needle felting – the techniques used will be appropriate to the garments participants bring.

    Student testimonials:

    “Felt very flexible and responsive to what we wanted and needed”.

    “Ronnie was really joyful. Lovely to stop and get absorbed in something. Very relaxing Sunday!”

    “Ronnie was so kind and patient and fun. Great teacher! Made everyone feel welcome whatever skill we had (or hadn’t in my case). She covered many different techniques which we could use at home. I loved the whole ethos of mending garments rather than buying more and wasting things.”

    “Ronnie was wonderfully enthusiastic. Very hands on and so inspiring. She has ideas for mending everything with use of different techniques…This exceeded my expectations”.
