About this Event
823 Exposition Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90089#workshop
Join us on a four-day visible mending workshop and learn how to repair and mend in ways that don’t erase the damage but rather leave the remnants of the damage and the repair visible. Save discarded fabric and/or recycle text paper from ending up in landfills; instead, upcycle them and create a beautiful art piece. We will discuss the concept of mending and repair in relation to Louise Bourgeois’ work. Participants will be invited to bring discarded textiles and paper such as blankets, quilts, pillowcases, ripped letters, book pages, etc. to participate in this hands-on experience. All other materials will be provided. For ages 15 and older.
Dates: September 10, 17, 24 & October 1, 2022
In partnership with the USC Office of Sustainability and Arts and Climate Collective (ACC).
Kate Ingold lives and works in Pasadena. Her work often begins with “damaged goods” - torn and discarded hand-sewn quilts, broken porcelain figurines, and other objects, vintage magazines, and books, as well as her own photographs - touching on aspects of loss and repair. She sometimes ventures into video installation and performance and much of her visual work involves language. A collection of her poetry, Dream of Water, was published by the Poetry Society of America in 2008. She received her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1999 and will be receiving Zen Buddhist precepts in 2022. Her education is ongoing.
