Months on and we’re still feeling the warm happy glow we experienced at the amazing and exhilarating MEND*RS Research Symposium in June. We were there as Menders in Residence, hosting a stitch clinic, but luckily we were also able to take in all the brilliant talks and discussions from a wide range of tinkerers, thinkers and makers. One of which included our very own Sara Han presenting her research on upcycling textiles on a large scale.
- That our society needs to be more materialistic – not less. We need to have more respect and value for the things we own.
- Things need tending and mending as much as they need creating.
- That once you’ve mended something once, you build a connection with it and thus are more likely to keep on mending it.
Happy mending all!
