Feral Fabric Tenderloin Cape Project

In 2019 Feral Fabric held a free cape making workshop in the Tenderloin neighborhood of San Francisco. Inspired the neighborhoods history of non-comformity that persists today even, we wanted to collaborate with residents on a series of capes that refelect that diffiant difference. Participants reflected their own style, interests, and cocerns in their contributions, and everyone got to pose in front of the prom style neighborhood banner.

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.
