Join us for this FREE mending class series, sponsored by the District Department of Energy and Environment.
Hosted by Common Good City Farm and St. George’s Episcopal Church.
Do you have a favorite pair of jeans that are just a *little* too worn out to wear anymore? How about holes in your socks? Stains on a favorite shirt? Or, maybe you just want to save money, reduce your environmental impact, and reject throw-away culture. Then this workshop series is for you!
This class will be taught by Ursula Sandstrom of Bowerbird Stitchery. Each week will cover a different type of mending, and include a free beginning mending kit for each participant. This ticket is for the third class in the series. To access the other classes, please click on their links below.
Week 1: Darning – reweaving socks and other holes
Week 2: Mending your rips and tears
Week 3: Visible Mending – covering your stains and making it beautiful
Participants from Kelly Miller public housing, other public housing residences, and who are low-income receive first priority for this class series.
