RAGS: Too Far Gone to Mend

Sunday, Jul 14, 2019 - 2:00 PM-3:30 PM

If mending is reconstruction, rag-making is deconstruction. Bring used clothing, underwear, towels, and sheets too far gone to mend and Cindy Zimmerman will teach you how to create attractive and useful rectangular shapes. Leave some rags behind for others, and take some from the stockpile for your own projects. This workshop is limited to 12 participants; advance registration recommended.

This program is presented as part of To Do · A Mending Projecta participatory exhibition conceived of by artists Michelle Montjoy, Anna O’Cain, and Siobhán Arnold in response to the escalation of political, social, and economic tensions in the United States that have increased a sense of divisiveness within our culture. These artists will organize and teach a series of workshops on topics ranging from traditional, domestic, and repair tasks to movement, breathing, and sound.
