Learn the art of mending & upcycling with designer Rebecca Wright

When: Saturday, June 15th | 11am - 2pm 

Where: Shop Slow, South Lamar Boulevard, Austin, TX, USA

Join us for a Community Mending Workshop with Rebecca Wright of Psychic Outlaw! This is a unique opportunity to learn the art of mending, while connecting with fellow community members. The workshop will be held at Shop Slow on South Lamar Boulevard in Austin, TX. Come to discover the joy of repairing and breathing new life into your favorite clothes.

During class, you will use scraps from the Psychic Outlaw studio to add patches to your items. You will learn how to hand-sew patches using a decorative blanket stitch. Don't let your favorite clothing items go to waste – join us for this event and embrace the satisfaction of giving them a new lease on life! Bring along any old piece of clothing that may have staining, holes, or simply needs to be mended. Rebecca will assist you in repairing & revitalizing these beloved pieces during the workshop.

At the end of the workshop, you will leave with a mending kit so you can practice upcycling at home!

Kit includes:

  • embroidery floss
  • embroidery needle
  • scraps from Psychic Outlaw's workshop (bring your own small grocery bag to fill!)

Picking the Right Garment: When selecting your piece of clothing, opt for fabrics like cotton, chambray, thin denim, canvas, and natural fibers. Steer clear of overly stretchy materials, fabric with a loose weave, and thick fabrics that are difficult to sew through. Shirts, dresses, pants, skirts, thin jackets, sweatshirts, tote bags, and backpacks are all acceptable options. Make sure to iron your clothing before class and wash any new items beforehand. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions!

Don't miss out on this wonderful chance to learn, create, and connect!
