Artist-in-Residence Katrina Rodabaugh

July 13-17 at Mechanics Plaza. Rodabaugh will be focusing on her slow fashion project, Make Thrift Mend. For nearly two years, Rodabaugh has abstained from the mainstream fashion industry and instead focused on making, mending, and preserving her wardrobe through traditional textile crafts while buying secondhand clothing made only from natural fibers.During her residency, she will share various works-in-progress and offer lunchtime demonstrations, discussions and displays. Blurring the lines between art, craft, and social activism, Rodabaugh has invited prominent Bay Area textile artists to join her for conversation and collaboration during the daily demonstrations. This intimate view into textile artists’ slow craft process is meant to be in juxtaposition and resistance to the bustling fast-paced backdrop of downtown San Francisco
