visible mending & embroidery workshop

Learn how to embellish and repair denim beautifully!

Using patching and embroidery techniques and taking inspiration from Japanese Sashiko stitching, we’ll help you to create visible mends that are unique and fabulous.

The workshop takes place as part of the Community Learning Festival at MMU, and is part of a three-day celebration of community learning in Manchester.

Re-Do Your Denim is a FREE drop-in workshop, so there’s no need to book in advance.

Skills: This is a hand stitch workshop. You will learn how to patch denim, and a variety of different embroidery stitches including Sashiko.

Level: Suitable for beginners, for any age 10+

Bring: Bring along a denim item if you have one you’d like to embellish. If not, we will have denim samples for you to work on. If you have a non-denim garment you’d like to work on you’re welcome to bring that too!
