EMBROIDERING STORIES

Online workshop at CHAT, THE MILLS

David Medalla's artwork A Stitch in Time invites visitors to attach a keepsake or memorable item to the hanging fabric displayed at CHAT’s Arcade. During the course of the exhibition, the fabric will be transformed by public participation and become a testimony of a moment in time.

 

Echoing alongside, I am honoured to hold a workshop to teach you stitches which allow you to ‘draw with a needle’ or attach items to a pre-loved garment or fabric. Decorate a preloved garment (i.e.: a jacket, a pair of jeans, a shirt) with words or a small item (i.e.: a stone, a small toy, an odd earring whose pair got lost)

MAKE YOUR WEARABLE ART

Second round at SIN SIN FINE ART

"It seems we are massively entering a quarantine of consumption where we will learn how to be happy just with a simple dress. Corona virus offers a blank page for a new beginning” says Li Edelqoort.

 

Slow Clothing is a philosophy.

It emphases on the art of clothes making and celebrates the skills of the craftspeople who make them. 

 

Through exploring the basic skills of clothes making, compose your own wearable art that reflects your style and spirit. We – the wearers can be original, authentic and resourceful. 

 

Once gone through the fundamental sewing skills, you'll find more ideas to refashion your preloved garments.

You are welcome to bring your own fabric or old clothing to upcycle!

Voice Off, Heart On.
