Does your favorite jacket need a patch? The Fabric Workshop and Museum will provide instructions and materials for customizing your own jacket patch. Dive into an array of materials such as felt, thread and screen printing to compose a patch that represents your vision of freedom in contemporary culture. The patch making activity is inspired by Ursula von Rydingsvard’s collaboration with The Fabric Workshop and Museum, PODERWAĆ, 2017, a monumental-sized leather motorcycle jacket.
