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 some materials for patching etc. will be provided, but feel free to bring your own scraps.
When & Where
Our mission is to create a market for reclaimed building materials. We do this by diverting materials from landfills and making them accessible for reuse through our retail warehouse, by promoting sustainable deconstruction practices, by providing education and job training programs, and by creating innovative models for sustainable reuse.
