Saturday 22.1.2022. at 14:00
Free participation with pre-registration. Registrate here. We will send more information and detailed participation instructions to those who have registered.
The workshop will dive into the world of fashion and clothing design. You will learn to explore dressing in a creative and playful way through various material experiments and your own design task.
The workshops are inspired by the work of fashion designer Venla Elonsalo. Elonsalo has designed a women’s clothing collection in which she combines the patterns of a garment and a plush toy, bringing the features of a plush toy to the garment. The workshop will first marvel at the design features of Elonsalo, after which the participants will be able to design for themselves. What kind of character is your outfit based on, what shapes do it have and who would wear the outfit?
You can participate in the remotely guided Design Workshop by registering in advance. The workshop is free for participants and is suitable for the whole family. It is carried out on the Zoom platform. During the workshop, participants can also reflect on their own style, explore their own clothing-related feelings, and compose creations over a paper-doll-like character. The workshop is guided by Mari Kosunen, workshop instructor and handicraft teacher at the Design Museum. The workshop is in English.
We can accommodate the first 30 registrants, so book your place well in advance. The duration of the workshop is about 45 minutes. A zoom link and more detailed instructions for joining the workshop will be emailed to those who register.
The workshop is designed so that you can use materials found at home: you don’t have to buy anything to participate. Participation is not about tools, and there are many ways to do it. For example, you can gather some of the materials below to attend the workshop. In addition to the materials, you need a paper character to design on. You can print a template (pdf file below), draw the character yourself or cut one out from a magazine.
Possible materials needed in the workshop:
In this workshop, more important than materials is creativity and ingenuity. Scissors, glue, paper and crayons are good basic tools. In addition, you can take advantage of markers, colored cardboard, tissue paper, magazines, newspapers, muffin / cake paper, gift ribbons, pieces of cloth, feathers, sequins or natural materials you find.
Welcome all designers, big and small!
