Learn a wide range of mending techniques for clothes and other textiles, including hand sewing, patching, darning and needle felting, from professional mender Erin Lewis-Fitzgerald.
This course will focus on visible mending – creative, colourful repairs – but will also cover some invisible methods.
The course is suitable for ages 15 and up; no mending experience is required but basic hand-sewing experience is recommended. (The Bridge also runs a sewing course if you’d like to learn sewing basics.)
Students are encouraged to bring their own mending projects to work on.
“I loved this course. It gave me lots of techniques and inspiration for mending clothes in a creative and practical way.”
“The course was really well balanced and certainly delivered on its description, I definitely feel I could/can mend my own clothes – now just to find the time. Erin was a great teacher and helped develop a great group dynamic. Thanks for the new skills. The course was also excellent value.”
“Erin was very generous with her time and knowledge. It was great to hear about her philosophy, experiences, and see examples of her work. She was also excellent at encouraging everyone’s projects.”
“Erin has a wonderful positive approach and makes everyone feel like they can achieve.”
