In this course, students will learn the fundamentals of visible mending. A hot trend in both the art and craft world, mending gives new life to worn and broken objects. Taking them from one of millions to a unique, individual object with new meaning imbued. Both a beginner level class, or building on last year’s Mending course, this course focuses on using contrasting thread and fabric to proudly show the time and effort that went into mending the clothing. Using techniques like boro stitching, darning, and patching, this class will have you rethink throwing away your sweater the next time it tears.


LAUREN SINNER is an artist, curator, and educator based out of Portland, Oregon. She is currently the Managing Editor of Surface Design Journal and a Studio Assistant to Marie Watt. Lauren's artistic practice revolves around the use of textile techniques and materials to address issues of anxiety, comfort, and humor.
