Mending is a makeshift shrine to healing, reconciliation and sustainability. The word and act of mending conjure up a bygone age when things were repaired, darned, fixed, reused, worked on, put right. On the mend… mending fences… mending one’s ways… mending worn out clothes… mending a broken heart.
