“Reap What You Sew” is a drop-in protest banner-making workshop! Come with a sewing project already in progress, a piece of scrap fabric to begin your banner, or help us produce some to share with others. Collaborative projects welcome! We’ll have inspirational examples, basic supplies, iron-on templates, fabric, scissors, and other materials to make your own forms of visual resistance to take away and finish. For a small donation we’ll even provide a small fabric panel for you to start with. Get ready for upcoming Inauguration actions in a collective atmosphere! All skill levels welcome, sewing not required but helpful to know! Led by artist Stephanie Syjuco and the 100 Days Action collective in residence at Royal NoneSuch Gallery.
WHAT TO BRING:
Donations of useable fabric scraps or yardage in all colors are welcome, as well as fabric panels such as clean bedsheets, pillowcases. If you have a sewing kit (needle, thread, and scissors) bring them for your personal use so we can share our resources with those that don’t have them. While we’ll have several sewing machines on-site, we regret that we can’t accommodate more due to space constraints.
