Frau Fiber's Sewing Rebellion: Pockets of Resistance

This event has expired. Please visit the Events Calendar for current listings.

Frau Fiber brings her nationwide project, Sewing Rebellion, to the Camera on the second Saturday of the month concurrent to our monthly Craft Lounge. Catch Frau Fiber’s regiment of Faux Fraus leading sewing, altering and repurposing projects each month. Shared sewing machines and sewing tips included.
January – April, Sewing Rebellion brings Pockets of Resistance! To draw attention to wage theft and the shrinking size of pockets in women’s apparel, Sewing Rebellion focuses on the Pocket: its history, pocket hacks (everyone wants bigger pockets!), patch pockets, pockets for belts, etc. As always, participants are welcome to bring their own projects and mending.
Craft Lounge is a monthly no-host gathering of all types of crafting – bring your works in progress and make something with your neighbors! The Camera Obscura Art Lab has shared knitting, crochet, sewing, collage and drawing materials and plenty of tables for you to spread out your work.
Camera Obscura Art Lab programs are made possible by Santa Monica Cultural Affairs.smgov.net/arts #ArtSaMo
