“Let’s mend life’s discarded fragments, used, loved and beautiful. Let’s give our things new lives and our lives new actions.”
Jonnet is an art activist and darner. With a background in prison arts education, Spanish TV presenting and fashion design, she is now doing a PhD at Highwire, Lancaster University looking at the future of mending.
Jonnet’s community-focused projects include flying 100s of knitted pandas to China and attempting a world record in mass sock darning.
Futuremenders is the lifelong project of UK artist Jonnet Middleton who took a pledge in 2008 to acquire no more clothes, ever.
