VISIBLE MENDING CLASS / Thursday, May 9th 6-8pm (open to anyone 18 and up)
Visible mending is a useful, lovely skill that eliminates waste and adds something beautiful to your favorite torn pair of jeans, pants or shirt. Learn how to patch, reinforce and create an original look on a torn garment during this class. If you have a garment that needs loving, bring it to start working on! There is no expectation to bring an item to mend, however. You will learn the technique and can continue to mend at home!
You will receive:
-Instruction on how to mend by Lauren Callis Erickson, owner of An Upcycled Closet in Minneapolis (class will happen at Polka Dot)
-Basic threading and needle use tutorials
-All necessary materials to practice or work on your own pair of jeans or other garment
-PDF zine for revisiting lessons learned throughout the day
There are 8 spots available in this class. Pre-registration is required. I hope you can join us!
