SEED Lab hosts workshops, conversations, gatherings and events around building a culture of repair, working to transform our culture into one that repairs more readily than it purchases, to create a more sustainable community. Workshops on mending, repairing outdoor gear, upcycling and object fixing, along with the sharing of how-to skillsets, help remind all of us that low-cost repairs help the climate. The carbon footprint of buying a new replacement is avoided.
We worked with Alaska artist Amy Meissner to examine and support a culture of repair through mending. The videos highlight Amy’s perspective and practice.
