Visible Darning with Erin Eggenburg
Location: Portland Studio
Teacher: Erin Eggenburg
Availability: SOLD OUT
That heirloom sweater, riddled with holes! A favorite pair of wool socks, over-loved and over-worn! Visible Darning is a fun and functional way to mend socks, sweaters and other knitted garments that have worn thin, worn through, or fallen prey to the dreaded closet-moth. Participants in this workshop will learn 3 different ways to darn socks and sweaters in different states of disrepair, with attention toward darning in a functional, wearable way. Textile artist, Erin Eggenburg will offer an explanation of darning materials and their use, a hands-on tutorial to practice 3 ways to darn knits, and explanation of how to choose a particular darning technique. Students will also have time to ask questions about their specific project and ask Erin for advice on repair techniques.
Please bring a knitted garment or textile you’d like to repair. Have a woven piece (ex. jeans, pants, button-ups) in need of repair? Erin’s class on Visible Mending will help you learn to repair knits!
