Gabriola Arts & Heritage Centre
Boro means ragged, tattered and patched textile garments. This workshop allows participants to breathe new life into well loved clothing. Up-cycle your favourite garments with visible patching and sashiko stitches. Elbow patches, torn knees, or worn out seats are no match for this simple yet effective technique. Your mending project will inject personality and uniqueness while extending the useful life of clothing.
Irene Fraleigh has been crafting and making things all her life and has taught a variety of workshops for all ages.
