Reap What You Sew: Protest Banner Workshop & Sewing Circle, With Stephanie Syjuco
Sunday, January 8th, 12:00 - 5:00pm
Reap What You Sew is a drop-in protest banner-making workshop led by artist Stephanie Syjuco and the 100 Days Action collective. 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!
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 to 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.
