Mindful Mending and the Art of Repair.

Are your favourite jumpers showing signs of wear?

Do your socks and tights have holes in them?

Then join us for a morning of slow stitching and mindful repair where we’ll explore a variety of techniques for restoring our old, worn and damaged clothing.

Why mend?

Despite living in a time when textiles are relatively cheap and available the art of mending is witnessing something of a revival, not just as a method of transforming old and damaged clothing but also as a way of transforming our attitudes to worn and mended textiles. The stitches, patches and mended marks become expressions of care, timelines in a history of wear and repair, making our garments more personal, less disposable and ultimately more beautiful.

Please bring bring an item of clothing to repair – if you don’t have a garment feel free to come anyway and make a decorative patch for use later. All other materials will be provided.

The morning will end in meditation together. 

As always the workshop is run on generosity and there will be opportunity to make a donation if you are able and wish to.

Newcomers to the Buddhist Centre are welcome. No need to book – just turn up!
