Patches and Mending (grades 9-12)

Students will learn basic sewing stitches and how to attach patches to clothing. Students will look at examples of different ways to attach patches, different patch styles/materials, and more. We will talk about where clothing comes from, why it matters, and the complex relationship between individual consumer practices and systemic changes and redistribution of power.
