Making and Mending Clothing

Making and Mending Clothing

About this Workshop

Textile and garment production is a huge source of chemical pollution and greenhouse gases, not to mention social injustice, but there’s so much we can do to resist these impacts and make a statement about climate justice! We’ll talk about how to decode garment labels and develop an eye for workmanship to buy high-quality garments that last; how to know when it’s worth it to alter; and how to hem and darn those socks and jeans to last. Bring one of your own garments for mending or consultation.
