Taught by Tom Of Holland
Best known for his Visible Mending Programme, Tom of Holland will teach you three techniques to repair knitwear: the classic stocking darn, Swiss darning, and a knitted in patch. Tom will share his wealth of knowledge, show his own work for inspiration, discuss motivations of repair and his own sources of inspiration. You will leave with a comprehensive hand-out of techniques covered, a selection of darning needles, and the skills to tackle any holes.
Skill level: participants need to have basic needle skills and have some experience in knitting.
Homework: you will be asked to knit a square (instructions to be supplied) and bring knitting needles and left-over yarn to the workshop.
