We'll discuss political, environmental, and creative reasons for dressing uniquely, and how we can effect change through the language of clothing. The workshop will cover some basic handsewing and creative patch techniques, and resources for further learning. Please bring any clothes you'd like to creatively patch. We will have reclaimed fabric patches available to work on. Clothing in the service of radical propaganda!

About the Art as Propaganda Workshop:

Radical Women hosts a revolutionary workshop series that explores the interconnections between art and activism. Each month we’ll learn a different skill and history of a radical movement, with an opportunity for participants to create art for a specific community action. Newbie and experienced artists and activists all welcome.
