Have you ever wondered how to save your favorite pair of pants or socks after a tear? This fall, The Southern Oregon Guild invites you to learn more about the art of MENDING as a creative, meditative, and sustainable mindfulness practice. Explore how old clothes can become more beautiful and kept out of the landfill.
Join local Illinois Valley creative Tracey Reed on Sundays October 2 & 9 from 12-2pm for a HYBRID workshop on the art of Creative Clothing Mending! Attend live in-person at the Guild Gallery & Art Center in Kerby or online via ZOOM.
Tracey will walk us through several styles of sewing and projects that include successfully mending a pair of jeans and darning a hole in a sock with sashiko style patching. You’ll receive 2 sessions of detailed instruction and gain the skills to continue mending on your own throughout the coming winter season! This series is open to all skill levels with no previous sewing experience required. Basics of sewing will be covered, such as how to tie a knot in thread, thread a needle, prevent tangles, and create patches. You get to work with your own clothing or fabrics while receiving loads of personal attention and instruction. Please visit our registration page to see the suggested materials list and more information!
Class fees are on a sliding scale $25-$45. If the sliding scale would be a financial hardship and you’d like to request a scholarship, please send an email to [email protected] or call us at 541-592-5019.
