This #mendmarch, learn foundational methods for creative textile repair.

Julie Woodard, founder of juicebox workshop, will provide an overview of mending techniques, tools, and tips for getting started—from selecting a needle and yarn, to practicing basic types of stitches. The workshop will focus on developing skills and confidence around plain weave darning, and the art of patching.

Throughout the class, Julie will share examples and demonstrate techniques from her own closet that feature darning, embroidered mends, and appliqued patches. Participants will go home with a visibly mended garment and the skills and creative inspiration to continue repairing and revitalizing items in their wardrobe.

About the Instructor

Artist Julie “juicebox” Woodard launched Juicebox Workshop as a way to honor her late mom and give new life to heirloom fabrics. Her zero-waste framed landscapes and reworked wearables also feature vintage goods, damaged textiles, cutting room scraps, and reclaimed trash. Julie’s process incorporates elements of collage, applique, embroidery, quilting, painting, and soft sculpture. The “juice” is the joy Julie seeks to create, and the “box” is her platform for storytelling and advocacy.
