Sustainable Design Series:

with Jenny Boucher

Tuesday September 12 + October 3: Boro Stitching
6:30 - 9:30 pm

Tuition: $30.00 + HST
Maximum 12 participants


As interest in changing our consumption habits grows, we are taking inspiration from traditional methods of mending to revive our favourite clothes. Usually it only takes a few stitches to give new life to an old piece. In this workshop, participants will learn the basics of invisible mending and decorative boro-style patching. We will also learn how to draw and hand stitch decorative patterns to repair clothing and linens. This workshop is open to any skill level and participants are encouraged to bring a pair of jeans, an item of clothing, or a home textile to mend during the workshop. All other materials will be provided.
