Learn how to save your clothes and save money in one of our four-week mending and darning workshops. With the help of your teacher Tamara Russell, you can learn all that you need to know about this great life skill across four weekly workshops in Melbourne.

Enjoy one or all of these relaxing classes on Thursdays, where you will learn how to make the clothes you love last. You will learn to repair and embellish your clothing making them a delight to wear again using simple stitches including Sashiko and Boro style repairs. We will cover both visible and invisible methods of mending to ensure you can repair all your clothes.

You will learn some hand stitching techniques that offer lots of creative possibilities for repairing and enhancing your clothes and household textiles. Mending can become an opportunity for wonderful decoration as well as saving money and reducing the amount of clothing going to landfill.

Week one (May 6th): Visible mending - introduction to mending
In this workshop, we will begin with some sewing basics, simple embroidery stitches and learn Sashiko running stitch, along with a variety of ways to repair your clothes. Then it will be time to get creative, repairing and applying beautiful stitching to your clothes.

Week two (May 13th): Visible mending - patches
In this workshop, you will learn how to create one-off patches to repair your clothes. You will be creating your own embroidered sew-on patches using recycled and reclaimed textiles from around your home. We will cover a variety of stitches and methods to create your patches before adding them to your clothing.

Week three (May 20th): Visible mending with darning
In this workshop, you will be shown traditional repair skills which enable you to add contemporary flair to darning your clothes. We will begin with some mending basics, look at how to prepare your woollens for repair and about different types of darning. Then it will be time to get creative, applying beautiful patching to your woollens. Bring along your woollens that have seen better days.

Week four (May 27th): Visible mending with darning with needle felting
We will begin with some mending basics, look at how to prepare your woollens for repair and about different types of darning. Then it will be time to get creative, applying beautiful patching to your woollens. Needle-felting tools, scissors and a range of wool roving will be provided. Bring along your woollens that have seen better days.

The Guild of Objects is a Guild for all makers, artists and creatives; whether you are an everyday creative, an experienced creative, an “I need a career shift” creative, someone pursuing their creative journey as a side hustle, or wanting to explore your innate creativity for the first time.

Our mission is to connect you; the creative, with the skills that you need to progress your creativity as well as your creative practice.

In pursuit of our support for all creatives, the Guild runs an extensive number of workshops for all those seeking to connect with their own innate creativity. All our workshops are artist lead and small, we take a maximum of 10 enrolments to give participants the opportunity to let their creative juices flow whilst connecting with some newfound friends around our Guild table!

Whether you're coming into the Guild of Objects to purchase handcrafted artisan wares, attend one of our creative workshops with a local artist or to learn business skills from our experts, we welcome you to our humble home in Hardware Lane, Melbourne.

Our hope is that when you leave our home; that whatever you purchased will be not just your new favourite thing but it will still be your favourite in 10 years’ time; the experience you had and what you created in the workshop at the Guild will leave you talking about how nourished and inspired you feel with your friends, and what you learned in your coaching session empowers you and your business, so much so that even your competitors are talking about your businesses success!
