Raw Material: It's Never Too Late to Mend

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk

Description

An invited talk and workshop at Murray Edwards College, University of Cambridge in response to the exhibition What Lies Beneath: Women, Politics and Textiles (April-August 2022).

Workshop Description

In this workshop, we will thread our way into the fabric of our lives, using sewing for embellishment, repair and piecing together what matters. We will discover our own way of sewing, as a form of making with what we have at hand. This will not be a taught workshop, but an open space to experiment and discuss the significance of mending, women's sewing circles, and contemporary women's textiles.
