Radical Mending: Session 1

@ SAIC at Homan Square

906 S Homan Ave, Chicago, IL 60624

Opening Saturday, September 9th, from 10AM - 12:30PM

It’s time to get out the cold-weather clothes… Before you give up on ever wearing them again, join us for two sessions of Radical Mending–you’ll learn practical sewing skills including how to hem, patch, and adjust the fit of your existing garments, and try new ways to customize your clothes and make them your own. That top that never quite fit? Bring it! That pair of pants that’s really too short? Bring it! Those jeans with the hole in the knee? Bring them, too! Simple hand- and machine-sewing techniques will be introduced, and a variety of fabrics, buttons, and pre-existing garments will be available for you to deconstruct and use.

No previous sewing or designing experience required.

Radical Mending will be taught by CS instructors Kate Hampel and Melody Williams.

LOCATION: Nichols Tower, 12th floor

AUDIENCE: Adults – ages 18+

FEES/COST: No cost to participants – all supplies will be provided
