My daughter Kimberly loves art and painting! She's been painting since the first grade. I noticed she loves to paint after spending a lot of time in the art room in her after school program. She enjoys spending time with the art teacher who became her art mentor. No matter where we are, she starts drawing or painting! She asks me all the time to have the latest art supplies to enhance her art skills. She is very talented and makes her own characters and designs her own phone cases! My daughter is a very creative artist and is building more confidence everyday.
Kimberly, my talented and creative daughter, I am so proud of you! Let's get it and continue to grow! You can do it!!! Love, Mom
Established in 2017 by Somerville artist, Emily Tirella, Make & Mend was born out of necessity. Make & Mend is a second-hand art and craft supply shop in the heart of Union Square. The goal of this space is to bring gently used art supplies to the community at a reasonable rate. We have everything from high quality yarns to glue sticks to paint brushes to fabric.
Art Supplies are incredibly expensive retail and many area artists and makers are unable to try lots of different mediums and grow their practice because of financial restraints. We just want people to make things, try different mediums and learn from each other.
