In this workshop you will become a fearless mender. All of the techniques for structurally repairing your garment will be shown. Additionally, discussion in how to add design or figurative elements will be suggested and described, so that you will learn to see the holes and frays not simply as things to be fixed, but as opportunities to highlight your personal story.
