Join Alinah Azadeh to make visible repairs to clothing that means something to you whilst talking about repair and mending as a way to heal ourselves.
In times of crisis we have been affected in many ways; physically, emotionally or financially. Life changes, we can feel wounded but we get through. Strength can come from others and also from our own creativity. Worn clothing bears the marks of our joyful and painful life experiences. The process of repair and skills used are symbolic of how we might renew ourselves and our community.
“By doing a visible repairs to clothing we don’t hide a tear or a ‘wound'. We show what it’s been through, making it stronger and part of who we are.”
You will need to provide your own clothing or accessory to repair, materials and sewing equipment.
