Mending is a workshop that explores textile repair, how you do it and why you do it. It considers the tenderness and care of mending. The aim of the workshop is to examine your own clothes that have holes and figure how they got the damage and then to work out how you want to repair them.
Led by exhibiting artist Celia Pym, you will practice and learn mending techniques, developing skills in woven and ‘knitted’ darning and patching. Starting with warm up drawing exercises and a tour of What Do I Need To Do To Make It Ok? It promises to be a rich day with the rare opportunity to work in NCCD’s main gallery during exhibition changeover so we will be able to respond to and enjoy the space.
Please bring along as many damaged garments as you like to discuss and mend and any favourite yarns or fabrics. A supply of yarns, tools for repair, and drawing materials will be provided.
No previous darning, drawing, knitting, needle based experience is necessary.
Mending will be led by Celia Pym, exhibiting artist in What Do I Need To Do To Make It Ok? Roof Gallery 18th Mar – 14th May 2017.

Each year here at The National Centre for Craft & Design we proudly celebrate the creative talent of Lincolnshire students through an annual competition and exhibition.
Founded by St George’s Academy and The National Centre for Craft & Design, Lincolnshire Young Designer of the Year welcomes students to enter an art/design project which best shows their creativity, independent thinking and most innovative, high quality concepts and designs.
The competition is open to any Lincolnshire-based students/home-schooled students in Key Stages 3- 5. Each student can submit an entry of an art/design project. From this entry, the NCCD’s independent selection panel will anonymously judge the work, selecting work for the exhibition and for the awards. The work submitted can cover a variety of disciplines and materials, with an underpinning ‘design’ focus.
The exhibition opens with a special awards ceremony on Fri 30 Jun 4.30-6.30pm and will be open to the public until Sun 2 Jul for the weekend, FREE and open to all.
Along with the coveted title of Lincolnshire Young Designer of the Year 2017, four awards are presented each year for innovation; artistic excellence; exceptional research and development; and most inspirational concept. Each shortlisted applicant will be awarded an exhibiting certificate to celebrate their achievement.
