Boro embroidery for visible mending at the Crary Art Gallery

October 4 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

If you are interested in making your clothes last longer, and are intrigued by the current trends for visible mending, then the ancient Japanese tradition of Boro is a great place to begin. While historically, Boro grew out of necessity, preserving textiles and making them thicker and warmer, today it is part of a growing movement to keep textiles out of landfills and extend the life of our wardrobes. During the workshop we will look at contemporary examples of visible mending, and try our hand at sewing on a boro patch. Participants are welcome to bring an item of cotton or denim clothing they would like to mend, but all materials needed to practice will be supplied.
