Darning Masterclass with Tom Of Holland

Saturday 30th January 2016

We were delighted to present the following (long awaited) workshop with, the much sought after, textile fiend, Tom van Deijnen. We booked him in June 2015 whilst the shop was still a building site and this was the earliest available workshop date, some eight months later, we could find an empty line in his diary for Faversham.

DARNING MASTERCLASS WITH TOM OF HOLLAND
12 noon – 3pm

Tom van Deijnen is renowned for his Visible Mending Programme; he teaches Swiss darning, Scottish darning and stocking darning, discussing the application, advantages and disadvantages of each.
Tom will share his darning showcase to highlight what you can do to love and re-love your garments. He will demonstrate a vintage Speedweve, traditional darning mushrooms and talk about why darning and repairing clothes is important to him.

Whilst all darning materials for the class are provided, you are encouraged to bring an item from home to work on during the session.

You will receive a comprehensive handout to take home.
