Home Economics: Radical Mending

Radical Mending is a workshop to teach and learn about mending clothing, and an ongoing research/informational project on the history of textile repair, the global textile industry, and its impact on labor and the environment. Bring clean clothing, knitwear, or domestic textiles that are in need of some attention, and be ready to share your mending know-how (or gain some). This is an art project, so please note that repairs may be artistic. A sewing machine and materials for patching etc. will be provided, but feel free to bring your own scraps.
