Event description
An Introduction to darning and a patching technique inspired by the Japanese art of 'Boro' to help you mend and upcycle old clothes.

About this event

Get ahead of the curve, and support the circular economy!

Help address the Climate Emergency and fast fashion by learning how to repair those items you no longer wear!

Set in the unique Tudor setting of Whitehall Historic House, this workshop will introduce you to darning and a patching technique inspired by the Japanese art of 'Boro' to help you mend and up-cycle old or damaged clothes. The workshop will take you through the basics of these 'visible mending' techniques to leave you feeling inspired to keep fixing at home! Both of the techniques only use hand sewing so can be easily carried on at home or elsewhere.

All materials and kit will be provided in the workshop.

All ages are welcome although children will need to be accompanied by an adult as we will be using scissors and sharp needles.

About Fast Fashion Therapy

Fast Fashion Therapy is a collaboration between Eleanor and Sarah. It was born out of a desire to help others to get the skills needed to repair and rework their clothing, giving everyone the opportunity to have fun with fashion in a more sustainable way, regardless of their income. The practical workshop can hopefully act as a therapy for our collective addiction to fast fashion!

About Whitehall Historic House

With a timber structure originally built around 1500, Whitehall Historic House is a Grade II* listed building set in the village of Cheam.

Following the recently completed National Lottery Heritage Fund refurbishment, and building on its 500 year history, we are delighted to once again invite visitors back to Whitehall to rediscover this incredible site for FREE. This Grade II* listed property is an impressive feature at the heart of the picturesque village of Cheam. From the permanent displays about the history of Whitehall, Cheam and the surrounding area, and of course the 500 year old building itself inside, to the distinct white weatherboarding, projecting upper story, and sloping porch outside, Whitehall Historic House stands out as something special.
