Finally, learn the art and craft of two visible mending practices, darning and Sashiko stitching, with Mitch Frank, teaching faculty in sewn construction at UW-Madison’s School of Human Ecology. In this hands-on workshop you will have the opportunity to apply these new techniques to your own mending project while considering the rich history and contemporary practices of mending on display at the Watrous Gallery and Lynn Mecklenburg Textile Gallery. Needles, thread, and some scrap fabric will be provided, but feel free to bring any materials you’d like to work with.
