Hand Sewing and Mending Workshop
Come along to this Hand Sewing and Mending Workshop and fix your precious vintage finds. Learn how mend and alter you vintage clothing without damaging precious fabrics.
You don’t have to know how to use a sewing machine to make and mend beautiful clothing and textiles. After all, until the first Industrial Revolution in the late eighteenth and early 19th century all fabric items were sewn by hand. It wasn’t until the invention of the sewing machine in the 1850s that hand sewing became optional.
In this hand sewing & mending workshop we will teach you specialised hand mending and alteration techniques that will help to prolong the life you your favourite clothes.
All materials and handout notes with stitches, tips and further references will be provided.
NB. If the scheduled time for this workshop does not suit you contact us to discuss an alternative time. If you have friends, family members or colleagues you think might like to join you for some fun stitching get in touch to book a private class (minimum 4 students).
