Event Details

Throwaway fashion no more! Come and learn how to fix holes in fabric the Japanese way with this ‘visible mending’ method. 


Repairing is an act of rebellion. 
We will learn how to mend holes, and signs of wear and tear with love and affection. 

It is a simple process that can be done by hand, and with practise makes beautiful results. Once complete you have made a piece of ‘Boro’ and a newfound love for your old clothes.`



Fabrics, needles and thread will be provided. 
Extra special hand-dyed and shibori fabrics will be available at extra cost. 



Please bring along something that you want to fix, a small sewing kit and some big scissors.
If you have some scraps of fabric you really love and want to use bring these too.



Oxidate Design was founded by Rhyannan in 2018,  because she loves textiles and dyeing fabric. 

She also hate wasting things, and love wabi-sabi: the beauty of imperfection. 

BRISTOL BORO SOCIETY is a group set up to help fight the forces of the fast fashion industry. 

Care for your clothes and care for our planet.

Oxidate Design

Rhyannan graduated with a Ba Hons in Costume with Performance Design from the Arts University Bournemouth in 2014, and found herself happiest as a Dyer and Breakdown artist - dyeing and artificially ageing costumes to suit a production. However it is her work with Colour, Shibori, Natural Dyes and Indigo that she loves most. This led her to found Oxidate Design in 2018.

Her passion and enthusiasm bring an infectious energy to her workshops. She teaches frequently at 'Bristol Folk House'. She is currently an Artist in Residence at The Island and is supported by The Princes' Trust.

Other weird and wonderful things she has done in her career include being trained by staff from the Royal Opera House, dyeing lots of fabric for Red Bull, the Dominion Theatre, making a giant hunk of moveable ‘clean meat’ for a museum, 6 pairs of gloves for Ru Paul in a day, an 1830’s silk chiffon gown with over 300 LED lights hand-stitched with conductive thread, many lycra dance costumes, giant pairs of pants, bondage lingerie… there is never a dull moment.
