London’s wardrobe: repair and refashion with Fast Fashion Therapy at the Museum of London

Learn the aesthetically focused art of visible mending, weaving your own strands of repair into pieces of your wardrobe. Join our Curator of Fashion along with Fast Fashion Therapy for a day of repairing and refashioning some of your key wardrobe pieces.

We will start the day with an exclusive behind the scenes visit to the museum of London’s Dress and Textile Store. Here, the curators will select key pieces from our collection to show you three centuries of mended clothing, and tell you some of the fascinating stories behind the objects.

After, we will join Sarah and Eleanor from Fast Fashion Therapy to learn some basic techniques to help you start repairing and keep your clothes lasting longer. This hands on workshop will take you through simple darning techniques for fixing holes in knitwear and visible mending such as patching inspired by the Japanese art of ‘Boro’.

All materials and kit will be provided for you to learn the techniques of darning and Boro patching. Feel free to bring one damaged item of clothing to repair in the workshop, but this is not essential. Costs £65, book via the Museum’s website. Link below.
