Co-Creative Sessions: Artful Mending

October 20 @ 2:00 pm 4:00 pm

Join Elaine Alder at Co Creative to mend your clothes. Learn how to repair your clothes in eye-catching ways that not only fix but enhance them, telling a story and encouraging others to resist fast fashion, too. Your clothes have taken care of you, so take care of your clothes. Mending is an ecologically sustainable practice that can divert trash from landfills, extend the life of your beloved garments, and express your personal style.

Co-Creative Sessions is a free and accessible online series geared to enrich, educate and connect creatives through a series of workshops and training sessions. New Bedford is the home of artists, creatives, change makers, designers, entrepreneurs and community enthusiasts and the Co-Creative Session embraces the pulse that makes New Bedford so unique while expanding our knowledge and connections!

With great thanks, this program is funded and supported by the Mass Cultural Council, New Bedford Economic Development Council and NB Creative.
