Artful Darning for Knits and Wovens with Repair Shop

  • 11:00 am - 1:00 pm | Saturday February 11, 2023
  • The Loft Suite | Ace Hotel New York

Artful Darning for Knits and Wovens by Repair Shop

In this 2-hour hands-on workshop, attendees will learn how to repair textiles using darning — a mending technique for fixing damaged knits and wovens. We’ll focus on creating visible mends that celebrate a garment’s history of wear and the repairer’s creative labor.  

 

The workshop will include:

  • Brief history of mending, mending techniques, and environmental impact of repair
  • Overview of darning tools and picking the perfect yarn
  • Step-by-step darning demonstrations 
  • Time to work on your project and get 1-on-1 help  

 

This is a hands-on workshop, and attendees should bring an item to work on—we recommend looking for small holes or very worn/thin areas in socks, sweaters, hats, and wool shirts or flannels. We don’t recommend jeans, t-shirts, or garments made of delicate fabrics.  

Our partners at Ace Hotel New York will provide some yarns and needles to choose from, but please feel free to bring your own materials to suit your preferences. Find recommendations hereOur workshop is capped at 10 people with 2 instructors to ensure one-on-one attention.
