Winter Craft Workshops continue at the Woods Hole Public Library on Thursday, February 6 at 7 PM
with a session on “Visible Mending” led by Woods Hole resident Crickett Warner. A second session the following week will continue the work on Thursday, February 13 at 7 PM.
“Visible Mending” is an ancient Japanese technique which allows worn clothes to be made yet more
beautiful and usable. The technique uses the methods of “borro” (mending) and “sashiko” (simple
embroidery) as a creative and resourceful way to breathe new life into well-loved clothing. Old, holey
jeans can be transformed into wearable works of art.
Patching material will be provided by the Library, as well as needles and thread. If people like to use
thimbles, they should bring their own. Workshop participants should bring their own worn clothes,
Numbers will be limited to ten at this workshop which is free and open to the public. People should call
the Library to register at 508-548-8961.
