Learn the art of visible mending in this 3 hour interactive online mending workshop.

Breathe new life in your clothes with repairs that strengthen and embellish your well-loved items using traditional boro and sashiko stitching techniques.

This interactive workshop blends traditional mending techniques with some modern tricks to mend your jeans into wearable art.

Each participant will create their own sashiko stitched sampler to practice the stitches, and learn how to apply their new knowledge to mend a pair of jeans.

Hope & Inspiration Online Art Show & Painting Parties

Our Hope & Inspiration Online Art Show runs for a full month 

Enjoy our online Gallery at any time from the comfort of your own home until December 6th. Tune in live for interviews with our featured artists. Join us for Paint-Along events. This is your opportunity to meet some of the Anglican Diocesan Environment Network’s local artists, discover how they view creation and purchase their works.

Why is the Diocesan Environment Network hosting an Art Show?

Art expresses ideas that words cannot and projects dreams we cannot accomplish in other ways. In all its forms, art can remind us of the beauty in the world. Recognizing that the climate crisis is the most significant crisis of our time, art can inspire us to reconsider our relationship with creation and point the way to a different, more sustainable world. It is our hope the art will reconnect you with the beauty of the earth. Allow the art to inspire you to face the climate crisis and vow to take better care of our world.

The Artists:

The exhibition is a collective of artists concerned with caring for the earth. The Gallery has works from all our artists and each week we will highlight one artist with an interview.

Week 3, Nov. 22nd to Nov. 28th – Donna Giles – Photographer

Week 4, Nov. 29th to Dec. 5th – Luke Haugen-Strand – Paint Artist
