Mendspiration Meetup

”Mendology” meetup with Kate Sekules, Bridget Harvey & Barley Massey

by Emma Mathews

At Fabrications Hackney

A mending discussion moderated by Emma Mathews, creator of Socko, held at Fabrications in Hackney in late-2023, with Kate Sekules, author of "MEND! A Refashioning Manual and Manifesto", Bridget Harvey, whose practice-based pHD "Repair-Making: Craft, Narratives, Activism" makes her a literal doctor of mending, and Barley Massey, a life-long maker and mender and owner of Fabrications.

We cover the themes of environmentalism, the history and culture of mending, technologies and learning practices and more.

Socko socks are made in the UK from garment cutting waste cotton, knit with ECONYL® regenerated nylon from fishing nets; each pair comes with a darning kit.
