    The Mended Way workshop series

    an interactive workshop on repair and material culture:

    April 2017: This workshop is a space for all peoples to explore what they think (know) about clothing as well as an opportunity to enhance personal awareness.  Providing participants an opportunity to reflect upon their relationship with clothing, document the importance of a particular garment to who they are, and expand their repertoire of repair approaches.  The flow of this facilitation will range from dialogue, to interactive storytelling, to “tool takeaways” (an opportunity to rework, repair a chosen garment).  Curated by Lucy Kruesel

    Qin Tan
    Jack Carroll
    Sienna Burnett
    Tom McGahern
    Abe Poultridge
    Abigail Hagan
    Natalie Reitz
    Anna Freedman
    Grace Witherell

    (Early show, 6:00!)  Come celebrate with us the collaborative works of some of Seattle’s prominent rising artists. This showcase will provide a glimpse into the power of art transcending medium with music, poetry, painting, live animation, and film colliding to provide an immersive arts experience!

    “The Next Stage collective believes in the power of chipping away, of small steps leading to a large thing, of smearing loudly and direct thought.

    The Next Stage collective is a practice, a group of people with ideas for ‘making,’ and a belief that the road to success as an artist is actually just a regular road with a lot of traffic.”

    – Sienna Burnett (Next Stage Artist ’16-’17)

     

    Early show: 5:30 doors, 6p show, all ages, mostly seated

    $5-10 suggested donation, no one turned away for lack of funds
