Woven MendingLearn how to use a darning loom to repair or adorn your clothing with woven patches!
SCHEDULE:9/20 | 6:30PM - 9:00PM
Learn how to use a darning loom (and take home your own lovely wooden Katrinkles darning loom for future projects!). In this workshop you will learn how to plan your mending project, prep the darning loom, weave, and finish your repair. Yolanda will share tips and tricks for fun, successful darning. Darning looms are great for repairing holes in garments, bags, or homegoods like jeans, canvas tote bags, and hand knit or crocheted sweaters and socks. The possibilities really are endless with this fun, easy-to-use tool.
Skills + Materials
This is a beginner workshop - no previous experience needed! Your workshop fee includes all of the darning/mending supplies needed for the class, including a Katrinkles Darning Loom to take home and lots of yarn. Please bring a garment you would like to mend - jeans, sweaters, socks, and heavier cotton/canvas shirts or jackets are super for this.

Cancelation + Make-up Policy
We absolutely understand that things come up and you may need to cancel your registration. We've done our best to create a cancellation policy that honors how fickle life can be alongside our financial commitment to our staff and teaching artists. First, you may always transfer your registration to another student (just let us know in advance!). If you need to cancel your registration we are happy to offer a 50% store credit refund for cancellations made two weeks in advance of your workshop date. Unfortunately, we cannot offer refunds for cancellations made less than two weeks in advance. We are also unable to offer make-ups or exchanges for missed workshops.
Students get a one-time 10% student discount that is active at the first workshop session and expires two weeks following the final workshop session. When you arrive at your workshop there will be a QR code to scan and provide feedback on your workshop experience. After the short feedback survey the discount code will appear.
