The Radical Repair Workshop is a traveling sculpture experience by Julia Gartrell.
It will be visiting spots around Durham in events that are free to the public.
Housed in a vintage camper named Sonny, the Radical Repair Workshop encourages participants and viewers to consider their relationship to mending, sentimental objects, single-use items, and radical (potentially non-functional) modes of repair.
You will be able to step inside the camper to explore the gallery and studio, contribute your own items for mending, and explore repair techniques through demonstrations and samples.
Through workshops and visits around the region, the Radical Repair Workshop teaches concrete skills, such as sewing and darning, but also explores abstract notions of repair.
