Under the guidance of lecturer, researcher and maker Angela Maddock you’ll gain the skills to make your own unique slow fashion statement.

The day will cover woven and swiss darning as well as decorative stitching techniques for textile repairs. There will also be a chance to get inspired by mended textiles from our collections. This fun, relaxed course is suitable for complete beginners as well as those with some experience of textile craft.
