Join multimedia artist Julia Gartrell to explore the process of repair and transformation through the Radical Repair Workshop, housed in a vintage camper trailer. Visitors are invited to donate broken items for the artist to repair, and learn how to mend their own objects. The broken objects may be restored to their fully-functioning state or they may become non-functioning permanent art objects. Visitors will be able to step inside the camper to explore the gallery and studio and explore repair techniques through demonstrations and samples. The Radical Repair Workshop will teach concrete skills, such as sewing and darning, but also explore abstract notions of repair.
Glue is a magical substance with many uses! Come explore the many uses of glue in this drop-in class. We will learn the differences between different types of glues and practice clamping and drying techniques specific to each type. Materials will be provided, but feel free to bring something you’d like to glue together.
