April 30: Sew Dolls of Yourself! Alter clothes so they'll look fabulous: An Interview with Dave End
Dave End is a touring queer folk singer, originally from rural Maine (Now based in Philly). Dave End makes stuffed animals, and stuffed people, and stuffed portraits of himself. In our interview, Dave talks about his history of making fabric versions of himself, altering his own clothes, and outfits for dancing and a musical he is writing.
He talked about rad art school projects he did with fabric and panties and huggable walls. And we talked about DIY culture and Fat Actvitism, connecting all these things: queer performance, DIY projects, fat activism, and self love. We talked about how to make the things you can't find in the world. To just make them yourself.
