STITCH 2010 6/14-6/18

During this week's workshop we will imagine, design and construct a range of projects out of fabric. We'll start with a studio full of sewing machines and piled high with textiles. We'll be joined by tailors and designers (including Michael Swaine and Beatrix) who will guide us, inspire us and take us behind the scenes at factories and boutiques (like the S.H. Frank & Co House of Leather). We'll see how making things out of cloth requires us to think like architects, painters, and sculptors. Deconstructing old clothes, we'll see how they are made before turning them into something new.
