About the event

Join  supportive and friendly teacher Tessa as you learn how to create a  colourful weave darn to add new life to your holey knitwear you wish you  could wear more. The perfect class if you're on the hunt for some  sustainable things to do in London.

Tickets from £13. PLEASE REGISTER HERE.

We all have a jumper  with a hole in it, either from wear and tear at the elbows or from those  pesky moths. No more sitting in a bag or on a shelf in the back of our  wardrobe, its time to bring these knits out into the light and get  mending

During this class you will get:

- An understanding of how knitwear is constructed.

- Different types of yarns, and needles for darning.

- How to create different shapes and patterns for your darned area.

Be  fashionable and sustainable. Visible mending is a declaration of the  care you have invested in your clothes, and changes plain knits into  something unique and personal and most importantly, back to being worn  again

By the end of this class, you will have all the  skills you need to breathe new life into your knitwear at home, and  possibly even an item you mended in the class.

Materials  are provided to work on a sample that you can take home as reference for  the darning process. Working on a sample will give you the freedom to  experiment and make mistakes, which as we all know is the best way to  learn!

20% of the ticket sales goes to support the volunteers at the Islington Climate Centre.

Thank you for your support
