Darn It - Mending Matters’ is a creative, empowering programme of sustainability and renewal through the Arts, for both you and your favourite belongings – your wardrobe, home décor, keepsakes and beyond. Initiated by the Tudor Artisan Hub, this programme is inspired by ’Kintsugi', the Japanese art of putting broken pottery pieces back together with gold — built on the idea that in embracing flaws and imperfections, you can create an even stronger, more beautiful piece to cherish. Participants are invited to engage, through a series of workshops and demonstrations, in learning simple practical skills to repair, reuse, repurpose and renew belongings.
