Sustainable Fashion through Mending: Green Maynard Mending Workshop

May 7 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

- Free

Did you know that fast fashion is the second-leading consumer of water resources? It is also culpable for exploiting laborers (primarily women of color) and gouging the budgets of consumers. However, there is an easy antidote to fast fashion – that we as consumers buy less and use what we have for longer.

This workshop aims to empower the Maynard community with the skills to repair our garments and create unique works of wearable art in the meantime. In this workshop, we’ll learn techniques from an experienced seamstress and fiber artist to turn common flaws in clothing into beautiful details and practical fixes.

Please bring your worn-out, hole-y, ripped garments for a morning of learning how to make practical and beautiful (or invisible!) repairs! Green Maynard and the Satin Butterfly will have some mending materials on hand, and you are also welcome to bring your own.

As this is an indoors event, we will be sure to follow local public health best practices and will make further announcements regarding whether masks will be required closer to the date.

Please direct questions to: Ariel Ackermann, afroyer@gmail.com
