Feral Fabric Backpatch Workshops

From 2018 to 2019 Feral Fabric led a series of free backpatch workshops encouraging people to self represent and get weird. The workshops took place as unsanctioned pop-ups at parks and festivals, at San Francisco’s Sunday Streets, at BAMPFA as programing for textile exhibitions, and Figment’s decommodified art fair.

Feral Fabric is the collaboration of Paulina Berczynski and Amanda Walters. It was established in 2018 as a platform for highlighting the history of radical textile production in art, activism, and countercultural movements. We bring forward ideas, conversations, workshops, and classes that combine our interests in textiles, contemporary art, and personal and cultural transformation.
