Deconstructing Tailoring with Graham Cottenden


This workshop invited participants to deconstruct and reconstruct the most ubiquitous garment in the West, and to invent a new dress / object out of it, while commenting through their work on our relationship to the suit.  Through this process the participants explored the complex layering inherent to the engineering of the suited body and re-fashioned it in response to the experience of the undoing of its structure.

Experience in sewing machine skills was required.

Price: £12
