WORKSHOP BY DNJ PAPER

Making and mending your own clothes used to be a common practice. But today, clothing is mostly bought and discarded, rather than self-made, and kept. Fast fashion hasn’t just disconnected people from making—it has also abstracted the ways we express ourselves through fashion. But this workshop is going to challenge that.

Join us as we reconsider garment life cycles—and re-evaluate the value of your clothing—by creating paper interventions on second hand garments. Looking to long traditions of using paper as a textile, such as Japanese kamiko (paper clothing), learn how the artistic practice of using washi paper can be made into new items from expert craftspeople.
