Where: Alex Brown Foundation Residency, Studio 455, Mainframe Studios, 900 Keosauqua
The Collective Mending Sessions is a series of socially engaged workshops centered on collectively mending abandoned quilts. This project cultivates care for cloth and the community through the meditative process of slow stitching. The driving metaphorical question behind The Collective Mending Sessions is, “How do we MEND our communities?”
Reinhart facilitates this workshop, where participants repair an abandoned quilt together. Participants learn basic mending and textile care while building a community in a warm, inclusive environment. Contributors’ names and labor time will be listed alongside this quilt in any and all future exhibitions.
Registration encouraged. FREE to attend. To Register, email Catherine at firstname.lastname@example.org, and please provide your full name, email address, and physical mailing address.
