Boro mending workshop


Join artist, Kim Boland, from the exhibition Collective self by the Reddy Arts Textile Group for this hands-on workshop to learn how to lay out your own boro piece.

Derived from the Japanese boroboro, meaning something tattered or repaired, boro refers to the practice of reworking and repairing textiles through piecing, patching and stitching, in order to extend their use.

See how Kim uses a machine Boro technique in her work and then learn how to lay out your Boro piece using coloured paper and glue.

This technique is suitable for the beginner through to the more experienced. Do you want to try more? For another hands-on experience, book now for a workshop with Alison Charlton.

Collective self by the Reddy Arts Textile Group shares the individual identities of the collective. Each artist has prepared a set of textile pieces reflective of their personal style and individuality. In Collective self artists explore their connections to the natural environment, their everyday lives and personal identity. Through individual and collaborative works, this exhibition presents an unconventional portrait of the personalities of Reddy Textiles.
