This is not a dress: exploring emotional narratives through clothing

Wednesday 24 October 2018, 2:30 pm5:30 pm

Would you like to investigate the feelings and memories your clothing holds through a creative storytelling process, and find the poetry that is stitched along the seams? Come join a two-part workshop designed for poetical exploration of clothing and discover your personal narrative in a new way. During the first session we will extract the raw material from the clothing, while the second workshop (optional) focuses on turning your personal findings into a story. The workshop is part of designer/artist Henrica Langh’s MA research and is being realised in collaboration with writer/poet Alice Hiller.

Please bring an item of clothing that you have an emotional connection with along to the workshop; this will act as a starting point for the creative process. We will be working with images as part of the process so please bring a smartphone with you as well.

By participating in the workshop, you agree to be part of the research project and that some information shared during the workshop may be anonymously published as part of the research. Any information shared during the workshop will remain anonymous and it is entirely up to you what and how much you share about your clothing item and process.

The workshop is part of an MA research project about affective objects and storytelling.

Strictly 18+

Sensitive content may come up during the event and the organiser cannot control what participants share during the workshop. Due to the emotional and self-reflective aspects of the workshop, the experience can become somewhat overwhelming.
