Patch Darning Workshop with Hikaru Noguchi
16th October 2018 – 11am – 1pm
Following on from last year’s sell-out session, we welcome Hikaru Noguchi back into Couverture for an exclusive new workshop. In this intimate event, we will be introducing Noguchi’s newest technique, Patch Darning. Utilising fabrics from textile innovators Mina Perhonen & Liberty, participants will be given the opportunity to beautifully embellish and customise old favourites and transform them into modern masterpieces.
With over 20 years’ experience in the knitwear business, Hikaru Noguchi’s range of influences are diverse, from the traditional to the more avant-garde. Her artisan skill and craftsmanship are evident throughout all her creations, quirky yet sophisticated, each piece is an unusual juxtaposition of colour and texture.
For one-day-only participants will be guided by Noguchi in the art of darning using a luxurious range of silk mohair thread and cashmere.
