Mending Has Meaning. Part practical, part purposeful, wholly peaceful. Join The Possibility Project and Annie Stevens in a morning of fashion activism. Raise your awareness on the changing landscape of the fashion industry, the power YOU have to make a positive difference and engage in the art of visible mending. You will leave a happier person!

No experience necessary, but challenging mends also welcomed!. The first part of the workshop is designed to enhance your awareness of the fashion industry, and open conversations on ways individuals and small groups are creatively changing the fashion landscape for good. The second part is a hands on mending activity, participants are asked to bring a garment to mend, Annie has a wealth of experience to assist with both simple to complex mending projects.
