Intro to Clothing Mending Workshop - 10.8.23
Rosie Barker is a Los Angeles-based design studio that creates artwork, clothing, and home goods out of salvaged textiles. Established in 2022 by artist and designer Rose Ponizil, Rosie Barker was founded to continue the dialogue around how we consume, and the afterlife of the products we purchase. Rosie Barker is the evolution of Rose’s first brand, Rosa Swim, a collection of limited edition swimwear and lingerie made using deadstock fabrics. Rose believes that sustainability is much more than just the textiles we use, it’s about intentional consumption. This translates to sharing sewing techniques, pdf patterns and education because when you create something from scratch, that fits your body just right, you are less likely to throw it away.In this 3 hour, hand-sewing workshop for beginner sewists, you will learn some simple stitches that will extend the lives + give new life of your favorite items. Please bring 3-5 pieces to the workshop so I can help match with your skill level. I will provide fabric scraps to use as patches but please bring your own if you wish to match your fabric. Thread will also be provided but please bring your own if you require a specific color. Examples of things to bring:
- Pants that need hemming
- Clothing with holes
- Broken straps
- Towels or linens with small rips or holes
- Knitted or crocheted clothing or blankets
- Items with rips larger than 10” that require a sewing machine for mending
- Heavy weight fabrics (anything heavier than denim)
