Sivia Harding to teach Decorative Mending at The Maiwa Textile Symposium
October 13, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm$140.00
Decorative Mending: Celebrating Traditional and Creative Methods (Advanced beginner knitters) – From vintage books on mending to the Japanese Boro Boro techniques that celebrate the beauty in something preciously old and frayed, Syvia introduces and shows you the traditional, then takes you into the world of decorative mending where texture and colour meet. Never thought that mending your knits could be creative? Come and celebrate your worn or damaged knits in a new way. When knitting is used to mend knits, you can transform damaged areas into beautiful and whimsical design elements. Use your imagination to choose colours and interesting stitches to embellish what was once a sad hole or worn elbow into a new object of pride.
This workshop includes a slide show of historic and modern examples of mended textiles.
