Tom van Deijnen - Darning Masterclass

  • Water of Leith Centre 24 Lanark Road Edinburgh, Scotland, EH14 1TQ United Kingdom (map)

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.

Level: beginners and beyond

Skills needed: No previous darning or knitting experience is needed.

Materials to bring: Although practice swatches, tools and materials are provided, participants are encouraged to bring along knitwear that requires repair.

Any "homework"?: none

Note: This class also runs on Friday afternoon.
