About Elysha Schuhbauer

I'm elysha (they/her) of @worthmending. I'm a DIY fanatic to a fault. Fixing or finding use for something that a typical consumer might throw out brings me so much joy. I see repair as a tangible form of resistance and resilience in a world where we're so often directed to toss and buy new, often at the expense of our collective well-being and future on this planet.

Resilience over convenience every time; I believe that a better world is possible if we build it. Building stuff is fun, and it's a learnable skill. I'd love to help you learn to fix what ya got and look at ~stuff~ differently!

I'm here on Patreon to host drop-in mending demos (to chat in real time) and Q&A sessions with YOU! Think of it as a blog minus intrusive ads! Where everyone in the comments is extremely cool and supportive! Your pledges will buy me vegetables, chip in on power tools, and be turned around to other artists I support on Patreon ♲

This is a new-to-me space where I intend to share lots of exclusive/early creative mending and repair content as well as talk through some of the things I find challenging about being an anti-consumerist*, self-employed** artist. Spoiler: it's so hard!

*It's intentional that I don't make many "low-ticket" items -- hand-crafted treasures take time, mass-produced trinkets are wasteful, and don't we all kinda want less stuff weighing us down? -- so I also see Patreon as a way for anyone who loves and supports my work just to chip in financially if you feel so moved. It's a tip jar, and a community-building tool, and **I appreciate your enormous generosity.

As always, thank you for being here, for your support and your optimism <3 I look forward to getting to know you better.
