Faculty & Student-run Sewathon

Please join us on February 14 from 11:00AM to 2:00PM for a faculty and student-run sewathon, taking place in the Main Lobby, 100 McCaul St. In response to the removal of paper towels from the washrooms, we will be making personal fabric hand towels similar to Japanese "Tenugui"—an individual towel designed for a range of uses. The sewathon will run  in conjunction with OCAD U's first Repair Café. Repair Café is a grassroots, volunteer-run event in which people teach each other how to repair. It aims to build a culture in which repairing rather than throwing out is the norm.

Consider supporting the sewathon in two ways:

1) by donating laundered fabric, preferably 100% cotton. Fabric can be dropped off in the Textiles Studio Office, Rm. 201a, Monday to Friday, 9:00AM-5:00PM 

2) by volunteering to sew at the event. Volunteers will need to sign up for shifts of an hour. If interested, contact Beverly Dywan - bdywan@faculty.ocadu.ca.

 

You may also wish to bring items needing fixing to the Repair Café to learn the skills of repair - jewellery, technology, and textiles are all welcome.

See you on Valentine's Day!

Join Nicole Collins and the Toronto Shape-Note Singers for an introduction to shape-note singing from The Sacred Harp tradition that inspired the sound element in Furthest Boundless.
