Visible Mending: Reverse Appliqué is a one-session workshop led by instructor Tara Curtis on Tuesday, April 2 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm. Register at the Arts + Literature Laboratory Adult Education page,
Visible mending is the act of conscientiously repairing textiles in ways that embellish the object, rather than concealing its imperfections. In this hands-on workshop (offered twice at ALL this spring!) Tara Curtis will guide participants through the process of visible mending using the reverse appliqué technique.
Students should bring 1-2 items of clothing that are in need of repair. Students are welcome to bring fabric that they’d like to use in the mending process. ALL will provide needles, thread, embroidery hoops and some scrap fabric option
