Narrative Garments
At The Eliot School, Jamaica Plain, MA

Begin with an existing garment and transform it into a functional or non-functional narrative object using traditional and non-traditional materials and fiber processes. Materials like window screen, plaster, paint, wire, fabric, plastic and personally relevant ephemera will become illustrative elements as part of a storytelling process. Explore the role of costumes and uniforms as narrative or informative elements in various cultures, with inspiration from the work of artists who use wearable and non-wearable clothing as a narrative medium. No formal sewing skills are needed.
