Add new life to your old textiles through mending and dyeing. Bring your tattered and worn items and try mending techniques from traditional japanese sashiko, felting, or improvisational stitching. Indigo vats will be available for on site dipping. Learn about the economic benefits and the shift in consumer behavior from disposable fashion to one of personally embedded value. Through sharing knowledge and materials, we can build a community of caring and move toward a sustainable future. All levels welcome, bring your textiles, small garments, and supplies. Some additional material available in the workshop. Pre-registration is encouraged as this event has limited capacity.
