Event description
Join the Dean, faculty, and staff of USC Roski to dye Shibori patches and learn the art of Boro mending.

About this event

Make Mend is a series of wabi-sabi workshops presented by the USC Roski School of Art and Design that will explore fixing or improving what is damaged, broken, or torn, with respect towards the handmade and creativity as a wellness practice. Participants are invited to bring items that need repair, embellishment, or altering, and all skill levels are welcome.

At the “I’m DYE-ING to Make That!” workshop, participants will join USC Roski professor Sherin Guirguis, Dean of USC Roski Haven Lin-Kirk, and members of the Roski staff around the indigo vat and stitch table to dye Shibori patches and learn the art of Boro mending. All materials and supplies will be provided to make one-of-a-kind creations and repair or elevate tattered or damaged clothing.
