Reclaim Labor: Radical Mending Workshop

July 6, 2018 at 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Short URL: https://siliconvalleydsa.org/?p=1349

Sick of the planned obsolescence of your clothes? Learn to salvage and make basic repairs while also discussing the complicated relationship between fashion consumption and workers’ rights. We will learn to sew on buttons, do a basic running stitch, and the sashiko/boro style of Japanese mending for bigger holes, popular for denim.

Some practice supplies will be available, although if you have any clothes missing a button, a cool patch to sew on something, or some jeans with holes you are encouraged to bring them.

 

Members of the public and DSA-adjacent friends highly encouraged to attend. Children welcome as well. Bring anyone!

*This event is free, although San Jose Peace and Justice Center does request we pass the hat, as they are powered by user donations.

For questions, please contact Bristol at info@siliconvalleydsa.org
