Workshop: Motifs, Migrations, and Misappropriations
Frau Fiber, "Fast Fashion" artist
Date: Thursday, September 26
Time: 3pm - 6pm
Location: The George Washington University Museum and the Textile Museum (701 21st Street, NW)
Artist and activist Frau Fiber is a textile super hero who uses pedagogical, material, and playful approaches to teach communities about the human cost of mass production and consumption. Her legacy project, the Sewing Rebellion, is a national campaign to “stop shopping and start sewing!” The Rebellion empowers people through skill-sharing, facilitates community building, and advocates for change in the fashion and textile industry. Join the rebellion in this hands-on workshop that reimagines a Syrian tunic from the Textile Museum collections using discarded t-shirts, remnants of our consumer culture.
This program relates to the exhibition Fast Fashion/Slow Art at the Corcoran School of the Arts & Design. Free.
All are invited to stop by and meet the artist, however reservations are required to participate in the full workshop.
