Visible Mending for Teens at Jameel Art Centre

  • Jameel Art Centre Jaddaf Waterfront Dubai UAE (map)

This October we are partnering with Jameel Arts Centre for a special free edition of our Visible Mending Workshop catered for teens and paired with a guided tour of Art Jameel's galleries.

in the spirit of the current Jameel Arts Centre exhibition Second Hand, this session aims to breathe new life into old clothes following the Japanese principles of wabi-sabi; embellishing flaws rather than trying to erase them, mending rather than throwing away what is old or broken. During this 2.5 hour workshop, students learn to darn holes, cover stains or simply update a used item of clothing with embroidered embellishments.

Note that all participants are requested to bring with them a personal garment they wish to work with.

Key workshop takeaways focus on looking at art but also on making and reflecting.
