Textile designer and artist Ýr Jóhannsdóttir or Ýrúrarí offers free workshops in creative mending on clothing at the Museum of Design and Applied Art.
The workshop offers tools, materials and room for embroidery, knitting, needle felting, machine sewing and educational material about textile mending. Participants are encouraged to bring clothes they want to fix, change or mend. There will also be sweaters from the clothing gathering of The Red Cross of Iceland that people can make an agreement on taking care off and bring home by the end of the workshop. If participants already have an idea of a mending they want to do they should bring specific yarns, fabric or other materials they want to use.
