Collective Mending Sessions Lecture

Catherine Reinhart leads a “Collective Mending Session” at ISU Design on Main Gallery in Ames, IA in February 2020.

Hosted by Catherine Reinhart and presented as part of
Portland Textile Month

In this session, which was held on October 13, 2020, SDA’s Advertising and Outreach Manager, Catherine Reinhart, discussed her socially engaged project, The Collective Mending Sessions.

The Collective Mending Sessions offers a space of making, learning, teaching, sharing, and connecting. As individual agency takes place, the student becomes the teacher and the community gains authorship. In turn, the gallery becomes a place of gathering where the art instigates and facilitates connection.
