Step into the Shoes of a Designer – a fashion-themed workshop in Design Museum’s Studio
Let the Anthology of Finnish Fashion exhibition inspire you, pick up the felt fens and design something yourself. Starting points are provided by sketches by fashion designers Jukka Rintala, Hanna Sarén and Samuji. Also to be seen and touched are fabric samples from Hanna Sarén, Samuji and the Villisilkki garment fabrics shop.
6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Share your memories of fashions
Memories of fashions will be collected from the public in connection with the Anthology of Finnish Fashion exhibition at Design Museum. What did you wear when you were young? What particular garments did you love or still love? What does fashion mean to you? Your memories can be from the present day or from decades ago. Tell us with text and pictures. All recollections are just as important. There will be crafts activities along with discussions and chatting. The fashion memories of Finns can also be seen and read at the www.muotimuisto.fi webpages produced by journalist and photographer Liisa Jokinen.
4 p.m. to 6 p.m. A night of arts and skills for the whole family
Activities in the courtyard area between the Museum of Finnish Architecture and Design Museum including origami, making birch mark rings and traditional conifer cone toys. This workshop open to everyone will be held in collaboration with the DAMY association of friends of Design Museum and the Museum of Finnish Architecture. Please note. DAMY will hold an auction of architectural photographs at 7 p.m.
