The textile and apparel industries are the second-largest polluters in the world. Confronted with this overwhelming issue, many people are seeking an alternative to fast fashion and overconsumption. There is a growing movement toward repair and mending as a way to combat waste and add a personal touch to the garments and textiles we treasure. Designer Christina Kim has made recycling and handwork central to her design practice.

Please join us for a workshop focused on visible mending—a style of repair that calls attention to signs of wear and the care that is taken to preserve things.
