Sunday 14th March, 10:30am – 11:50am
Workshop Space, The Cutaway
The sisters @highteawithmrswoo have developed a ‘kintsugi for clothing’ practice as a way to cherish and extend the life of your loved garments by visible mending with gold threads. Book to join their workshop on Sunday 14th March at TCS.
In this 1.5-hour session, you’ll be shown a kintsugi-mending technique to repair a hole in your favourite garment. Sewing needles and snippers, wooden darning mushrooms (or you can bring your own), golden-coloured fabric pieces and Japanese gold embroidery threads are supplied for you to share and use during this session.
This workshop is not aimed at teaching a perfect craft. It is to explore ‘kintsugi for clothing’ as a philosophical practice to inspire a better, slower approach to life. It provides a space for you to make an action, to spend time with your clothes in the company of others, to explore the values and expressions of new and old clothing, and what it means to care for them.
