MENding Workshop, at Century College, April 2, 2019
This workshop will begin with a short overview of fast fashion and discussion of how the way we buy clothes impacts garment workers around the world. We’ll also look at how our shopping patterns impact the environment and the quality of our clothing. Finally, we’ll talk about solutions and learn how to make our clothes last longer by sewing buttons onto shirts! All are welcome, but we want to especially encourage members of our community who identify as men to participate. If you have a shirt that is missing a button, bring it! If you don’t have one don’t worry! We’ll provide materials so you can participate and be prepared for the next time you loose a button.
