About the instructor

Eilidh Weir is a multidisciplinary artist and mending enthusiast. She has a strong DIY ethic, always collecting materials and learning techniques of making.. Everything that passes through their home is fair game for repairing, you’ll struggle to find a sock that hasn’t been patched or darned.
Eilidh runs a variety of workshops and is committed to sharing practical skills that resist consumer culture and strives to reduce waste across all aspects of life and work.

Much of her recent textile work brings together waste and pre-used textiles, her love of composting and the creatures and plants that she encounters whilst scraping around in the dirt and growing food.
