October 16 and 17, 2021   11 - 4 pm

During the Pullman Arts Walk (check back for link)

An art and Social Practice Work


Following the most current CDC guidelines, the artist, Catherine Schwalbe invites you to bring in a clothing item (or two) or household textile that is need of mending to mosnart visiting artist project. From holes in socks to button replacement, torn seams to hems (no zippers please!), we will mend together, as a metaphor for the collective process of mending our lives and communities. We understand that we are still in the process of experiencing a global pandemic, and our interdependence is more prescient than ever. Catherine has invited you in to sit down, consider learning or sharing a skill, reduce waste, and be with fellow humans, as we mend our individual and collective lives. All anticipated supplies provided including thread, needles, buttons, elastic, sewing machine, iron, mending eggs, etc. provided by the artist.
