Darning Masterclass with Tom van Deijnen

Learn to darn with Tom van Deijnen, aka tomofholland. Best known for his Visible Mending Programme, he will teach you two darning techniques (Swiss darning and stocking darning). Tom will also bring along his darning showcase for plenty of inspiration, and talk about why darning and repairing clothes is important to him. You’ll take home a comprehensive hand-out, two darning needles, and the skills to tackle any holey sock or thinning elbow, and be able to wear a beautiful darn as a badge of honour. All practice materials provided.
Cost ยฃ40 payable in advance. Places are limited to 12 so please ensure that payment is made as soon as possible.
We are delighted to invite the wider craft community to join us for this absorbing afternoon masterclass.
