Multi-layered Garment: Workshop by Galina Mihaleva and Regina (Maria) Möller

27 Feb 2016, Sat 1:00pm - 4:00pm
The Lab, Block 43 Malan Road

Garments are our chosen – second – skin. Their texture changes with time; they tear, leave scents and traces of stories and bygone histories.

In this workshop, participants create a garment that is multi-layered in its construction. For example, the layers refer to multi- functional use or to a variety of textiles, and materials it is made of which imply different cultural backgrounds. The pattern of this garment is based on the folds of the Samsui headdress and implies the many stories told and shared while working hands-on.

This workshop is part of the research project Interrogative Pattern – Text(ile) Weave by Regina (Maria) Möller at The Lab, 4 December 2015 – 20 March 2016.

Requirements: Please bring a spare piece of textile or garment for the workshop.
