Learn how mending textiles can enhance their beauty with Rose Sinclair
This workshop will look at how we can enhance things we mend by considering how the repair might beautify them.
Rose will use a range of techniques that can be applied to enhance and repair almost any textile object.
A kit and instructions will be provided to support your darning and to participate all you need is a garment in need of repair which you would like to 'makeover'.
Rose is a Lecturer in Design Education at Goldsmiths. She is interested in the ways in which women’s textile ‘clubs’ (for sewing, mending, knitting together) have been a catalyst for the exchange of stories and for social and economic change.
This event is part of Fixing It, Goldsmiths' contribution to this year's Being Human festival. Being Human is led by the School of Advanced Study, University of London, in partnership with the Arts & Humanities Research Council and the British Academy,
