Weaving patch darning is the perfect way to cover up small holes or rips in any kind of fabric, but especially finely knitted items and jersey. This weaving patch workshop will teach you a fun and useful repair skill so you can give new life to much-loved pieces of clothing.

Whether you go subtle and use the same colour yarn as your garment to create your patch or you go for a bold, colourful contrast to create a woven statement piece, is up to you. No matter what you choose, this crafty and easy method will absolutely revive your favourite garments. Just bring an item in need of mending, all other materials will be provided.

What to expect:

  • A mending workshop suitable for beginners

  • Learn how to darn clothing items with weaving patches

This repair method is best for smaller holes and tears, perfect for fine knit and jersey such as socks!
