In this workshop, the participants can expect to learn how to make sculptural garments (or wearable sculpture) out of recycled materials, textiles, and discarded objects. Mad scientist experimentation is highly encouraged! We will explore different techniques for dyeing or bleaching fabric, but will also use a variety of techniques for fabricating one-of-a-kind art garments, including draping on a dressform, appliqué, reverse appliqué and dimensional appliqué. Depending on the objects or materials you choose for your project, we will probably devise new techniques as well!
