DESCRIPTION: 
The final Make Mend II workshop continues our practice of mending, fabrication, and sustainability and embracing the wabi-sabi concept of celebrating flaws and finding beauty in imperfection. Participants are invited to bring their handmade tools from the second workshop and join weaving and needlework circles led by community members of the USC Roski School of Art and Design. In the spirit of sharing and community, materials made in the previous workshops will be available for use, and new participants are welcome! To cap off the end of the Make Mend II series, workshop participants along with students and faculty members from across USC will take part in a craft fair to sell, barter, and trade their wares including ceramics, comics, magazines, design goods, and more! 

Make Mend II carries on the popular series of workshops in which faculty, staff, and students from USC Roski lead sessions on unraveling, spinning, weaving, stitching, needlework, and other techniques to renew, reuse, and repurpose textiles. No experience is necessary, and light refreshments will be served.
