DSA Reclaiming Labor: Mending Workshop

When: Friday, July 06 2018 @ 06:00 PM - - 09:00PM
Where: San Jose Peace and Justice Center
48 S. 7th Street
San Jose, CA 95112

Sick of the planned obsolescence of your clothes? Learn to salvage and make basic repairs while also discussing the complicated relationship between fashion consumption and workers' rights. We will learn to sew on buttons, do a basic running stitch, and the sashiko/boro style of Japanese mending for bigger holes, popular for denim.

Some supplies will be available, although if you have anything missing a button, have a patch to sew on, or some holey jeans you are encouraged to bring them.

Sponsored by SV DSA, members of the public are welcome!
