Patching Perfection

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

10 Dec 2019 to 14 Jan 2020

Suitable for: children aged 13 and over

Teenagers and their Grandparents, Parents or Carers will love working together to make a perfect patch from recycled denim led by Jane Milburn of Textile Beat. Create your very own perfect patch to; give as a gift, add to clothing as a brooch, on to your jeans, a pencil case or wherever you think a perfect patch will add your individual stamp to an object.

Inspired by Belinda Smith’s Blue Jean Sisters as part of A Fierce Hope, Slow Clothing Pioneer, Jane Milburn of Textile Beat will talk about the importance of reducing waste and supporting sustainable and ethical fashion practices.

Grandparents, Parents and Carers are encouraged to share their tips and tricks for mending while making their own perfect patches.

As many parents, carers and grandparents know;

Until you make something with your own hands you don’t appreciate or value the resources, the energy and the skill that go into something that you buy.
