Workshop: Boro Inspired Mending
New 2019 Schedule available soon! Sign up for our mailing list to be informed as soon as it is available.
Boro refers to antique Japanese utilitarian textiles that people mended over and again to preserve and reinforce. The repetitive mending created abstract compositions that are now very fashionable on garments.
Bring any textile piece that needs some TLC and learn some simple techniques to give your personal item a new life. No experience necessary. Whether you are looking to - learn the art of visible mending, - repair or update your favorite jeans, - take a break from the news, or - connect with other creatives, this will be a fun opportunity to slow down and escape your routine for a few hours while making something with your hands!
