An experimental approach to clothing design ideas and processes and the relationships between our bodies and garments.

The idea behind this workshop is to recognise our bodies and how clothing can relate to them. We will be doing some physical exercises aiming to connect with ourselves and with others. We will also be experimenting with design ideas through different sensorial exercises enjoying the process without caring about a final result but paying attention to the ideas that emerge from that process.

You are welcome to bring different materials to work with, including any fabric, markers, scissors, needles and threads, paints and any other kind of material or element that you think could be used for textile intervention and garment construction. Please wear comfy clothes and bring your yoga mat if you have one.

Please join! This is an inclusive activity and you all are welcome! No previous knowledge required.
