Contemporary Darning with Sarah of Lark & Bower *New 2025



Do you have clothes that you’d love to wear again, but they’re stuck in the wardrobe because they need repairs?

This fabulous workshop is all about visible mending – and is suitable for all levels, even total beginners!

During this class you will learn a variety of woven darning techniques, including the classic ‘plain weave’, as well as twill, plaids, hopsack, herringbone and even dogtooth!

Visible mending is great for repairing holes but can also be used to cover stains, and even just to jazz up and customise your clothes! 

Tutor Sarah will bring lots of colourful yarns, as well as equipment for you to try such as darning mushrooms and eggs, embroidery hoops, and lots of fabric scraps for you to practice on before you go ahead with your own mends.

We are much less likely to throw our clothes away if we have mended them even just once. 

Learning how to repair your clothing is a useful (once upon a time, essential) skill that we can pass on to the next generation. And its FUN!

So join us for a fun and colourful day of learning, sharing and making, and give your beloved clothes a few extra years of wear!
