Visible Mending! Instead of throwing away a beloved shirt or a well-worn hand towel, learn how to decoratively fix a hole or a rip by repairing it. Boro translated means “ragged,” is the Japanese tradition of using small stitches known as functional embroidery, to mend clothing and fabric. All levels welcome – previous sewing experience not required. Participants must bring an item of clothing or cloth that has a rip or hole in it that needs repair. All other basic materials are included. This workshop is for ages teen to adult.
