Creative Mending – repairing clothes beautifully with Anne Schlüter from The Hole Story

Saturday 1. June at 10:00 - 13:00

MAISON SHIFT • Zeughausstrasse 56, 8004 Zürich, Zürich, Switzerland

A hole, a stain, a tear in your favorite piece? With a repair, you can not only save a garment but also enhance its beauty.

In this workshop, you will learn various hand stitches and techniques that allow you to repair your clothes subtly or strikingly, but always artistically. Running stitch, blanket stitch, and other useful stitches will first be practiced on sample pieces and then applied to your own clothes, which you can bring to the workshop.
The workshop will be led by textile designer Anne Schlüter from The Hole Story. She brings with her a wide selection of yarns, fabrics, and tools to be used in the workshop.

No prior knowledge is required. However, patience and enjoyment of slow handiwork are advantageous.

If you do not own a credit card you can pay the tickets in advance by sending us an e-mail to [email protected]
