School Holiday Workshops | Fashioning Clothing As Art

27 & 29 Sep, 4 & 6 Oct | Ages 7-12

Transform an unloved item of clothing into new, exciting, wearable art. In these school holiday workshops children will be guided by artist and designer of label Emm, Emma Buswell to create their very own crazy, fun and imaginative outfit inspired by Justene William’s exhibition The Curtain Breathes Deeply. Children will experiment with techniques including weaving, heat-setting, applique and construction as well as sculpture and collage. A great opportunity to up-cycle old clothes and develop a personal style. Be theatrical in what you wear!

Please note: Bring one or two items of clothing (eg. a t-shirt, shorts, skirt, pants, jumper or hat) to transform into wearable art.
