Stitching Life into Old Clothes
What's the value of a piece after it's been discarded and forgotten? How do you mend garments that have been abandoned for almost a century? Can something be too damaged to repair? Join Ben Keefe and Anna Rose Keefe, Conservation Assistant in the Costume and Textiles Department of the RISD Museum, in Repair and Design Futures to reconsider the lifespan of clothing, and discuss the process of searching for, finding, and repairing garments to make them wearable again.
Free with admission.
