MAD is open Monday, January 20 for Martin Luther King Jr Day.

Artist and educator Jennie Maydew employs traditional craft methods to achieve modern utility. At MAD, Maydew will construct a system of customizable, egalitarian, and modular storage components for garments titled Wearable Auxiliaries. The system is constructed from a no-waste pattern, a sustainable method of design that utilizes all of the fabric, including the scraps. The components are machine washable, sourced from reclaimed materials, and include a DIY button kit that teaches consumers to sew buttons on their existing garments in support of the continuity of craft.

Maydew holds a BFA in textiles and art education from Colorado State University and was awarded the Windgate Fellowship in 2016 from the Center for Craft, Creativity & Design. She is a 2019-2020 fellow with Art21 and currently teaches youth and adults in Brooklyn.

Visit Jennie in MAD’s Artist Studios Sundays, 10 am–5 pm.
