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.

For this Darning and Visible Mending workshop, visitors are invited to bring a piece of clothing with a hole in it, or practice with provided materials, and learn how to make beautiful, visible repairs in the spirit of sashiko, a traditional type of Japanese embroidery.

The Radical Repair Workshop, parked in the Nasher Sculpture Garden, is part of the exhibition Reckoning and Resilience: North Carolina Art Now.

We strongly encourage all individuals to be fully vaccinated before visiting the Nasher.

Specific health and safety information will be updated on this page.
