Learn how to mend small holes in your clothes with this darning ecourse. Darning is a traditional mending technique that uses a needle and yarn to fill in holes. It is also so much more:
Darning is the art of taking care of what we own. Making do, and tending to that which is broken.
Darning is a creative act of self-expression.
Darning is an act of love for ourselves or for another, and of love for this planet. Imbuing our own or our dear ones’ garments with attention and care.
In this short and sweet ecourse, you’ll learn the basic technique of darning holes, plus some ways to adapt this technique to trickier mends. There is a detailed video for each lesson, and extra photos and notes to supplement your learning.
You’ll have ongoing access to the lessons, so you can work through the course at your own pace and come back to it whenever you need.
This course is offered with variable pricing levels, to make it more accessible. If you can, I encourage you to pay the full price ‘Tree’ level or higher. This allows me to earn a fair income from my work, and also to offer concession places. In turn, this keeps the ‘pay what you can’ pricing model sustainable. But if you can only afford the lowest level, you are still very welcome.
Please note that all prices are in Australian Dollars. If you live outside Australia, head here to convert them into your currency before you decide which level to go with.
