Make - Thrift - Mend - Repair - Reuse - Restore - Reinspire
An exciting day-long eco-fibre-arts crafting retreat focusing on reusing and repurposing clothing and fibres. Recharge yourself with this "mendful" retreat, taking time to learn new fibre-arts skills, meet other crafters, relax in the garden at Little City Farm, and find ways to bring more mendfulness into your life.
Here is a sneak peek:
The day will be packed with 10+ hands-on workshops to choose from, led by a team of talented local fibre-arts-eco-crafters as our instructors! Learn useful new skills by taking part in sessions such as:
- spinning wool;
- felting wool (needle felting, wet felting);
- natural plant dyes;
- repurposing wool clothing into new useful household goods;
- making rag rugs;
- creative stitching & mending as an artform;
- altering garments to renew them;
- sewing rope coil baskets;
- making reusable beeswax food wraps;
- and more...
We'll feed you a hearty healthful lunch in Little City Farm homegrown style (eat delicious foods as we would make for our family, and learn how to make these foods at home yourself): wood-fired organic vegetarian pizzas, freshly-picked garden salad with edible flowers & herbs, and homemade pickles & lacto-fermented krauts, fruity kombucha; plus hearty homegrown snacks, herbal teas and organic wholegrain baked treats throughout the day.
