Sustainable Workshop: Re-do your denim hosted by Stitched Up

Don’t chuck your holey jeans - mend them better!

Learn how to embellish and repair denim beautifully! Using patching and embroidery techniques and taking inspiration from Japanese Sashiko stitching, we'll help you to create visible mends that are unique and fabulous.

Skills: This is a hand stitch workshop. You will learn how to patch denim, and a variety of different embroidery stitches including Sashiko.

Level: Suitable for beginners, for any age 10+

Bring: Bring along a denim item if you have one you'd like to embellish. If not, we will have denim samples for you to work on. If you have a non-denim garment you'd like to work on you're welcome to bring that too!
