Festival Details - "Seeding Repair & Reuse: A Skillshare with artist Amy Meissner"...

6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 18Online

Join us for a SEED Lab virtual gathering of needles with artist and workshop facilitator Amy Meissner. The live session includes live skill share, dialogue, laughter and connection. 

Cloth worn closest to the body is the most intimate, but often the least considered in terms of care. We expect undergarments to perform feats of engineering, to endure, remain strong, yet at the same time we refer to them as “delicates” and insist on their softest quality. In reality, this is our most vulnerable clothing, a skin against our skin, its labor invisible. Required mending techniques are as varied as the garments themselves, this SEED Lab workshop focuses on assessment, experimentation and potentialities.

Please bring to this workshop: pajamas/nightgowns with holes, bras or undergarments you aren’t sure can be fixed but think are worth experimenting with; needle and thread; scissors. Access to a sewing machine is optional. Free. Space is limited, so sign up early.

Anchorage artist Amy Meissner combines traditional handwork, found objects and abandoned textiles to reference the literal, physical and emotional work of women. She is currently a Northern Research Lab Fellow at the Anchorage Museum, researching craft as remedy and Northern repair culture congruent with graduate work in Critical Craft Studies at Warren Wilson College in North Carolina.

This is a North x North event. Learn about the North x North Festival and see the full schedule at anchoragemuseum.org/nxn.

Please Note: Direct participation for this program is FULL, but the session will be simulcast to our Crowdcast platform and you can watch it LIVE or as a recording. Register below.
