‘Mending’ with Celia Pym
The workshop will be followed by a talk

Date: Saturday 19 May
Time: 10 am – 1.30 pm
Venue: t.b.c.

Mending is a workshop that explores textile repair, how you do it and why you do it. It considers the tenderness and care of mending. The aim of the workshop is to practice mending techniques. You will learn about and develop skills in woven and ‘knitted’ darning, Boro and patching. There will also be an opportunity to work on repairing any garments that you own and that have holes.

Please bring along any damaged items that you would like to discuss repair options for. Darning materials will be provided. However for the patching if you have old sheets or shirts that have grown old and no longer worn or used and you would be happy to cut up please bring them! No previous darning, knitting, needle based experience is necessary.
Expect to have fun. Develop an understanding and knowledge of textile repair,
and gain an appreciation of why garments matter, and their history.

Celia Pym has been exploring mending since 2007 with extensive experience of small everyday holes, at heels, elbows, in pockets as well as working on more dramatic damage, from water damage, animal nesting and moth issues. Celia’s interests are around the evidence of damage – through repair you look closely at where garments and cloth have got worn down and thin. In clothing this wearing is often to do with use and how the body moves. Celia says “she likes that darning is often small acts of care and paying attention to where things fray and wear out.”

Celia Pym has exhibited widely and a winner of the Woman’s Hour Craft Prize in 2017. She is currently a visiting lecturer in Textiles at the Royal College of Art.
