Mend It… with a Comrags kit
This special project for Do Design features a limited edition designer kit by Comrags (Joyce Gunhouse and Judy Cornish) produced by dittybag (Kathryn Walter of FELT and Greg Woodbury). This mending kit, showcased in the storefront window, along with a projection seen above the shop (viewable 24 hours daily during Do Design), intends to focus attention on the art of mending. A series of hands sewing featuring local designers reads like an ad while offering a meditation on this fading practice.
The Mending Hands: Alexx Boisjoli, Colleen McCarten, Greg Woodbury, Judy Cornish, Judy Gunhouse, Katherine Walter, Kerry Croghan, Kristen Lim-Tung
Joyce Gunhouse and Judy Cornish, the creative team behind Comrags the fashion label, focus their production on quality goods made locally.
dittybag, a division of Kathryn Walter’s FELT studio, produces projects about mending that aim to resonate in a world where so much stuff with so little meaning is produced in excess every day.
The award-winning film DARN IT! by Kathryn Walter and Greg Woodbury (dittybag) premiered at TUFF: Toronto Urban Film Festival 2015, and will be seen at four venues along the Dundas strip. DARN IT! is a play on words revealing the frustration and subsequent resolution brought about by a worn out sock.
