July 31 / August 1/ August 2, 2020 5pm – 8pm (CET Berlin)
Christine Mayer is holding a three-part INTENSIVE DRAPING & UPCYCLING WORKSHOP with Zoom. The workshop is dedicated to creating dresses. The Berlin- based fashion designer has built a fashion career on re-purposing clothing and breathing new life into old garments. She is a pioneer of three-dimensional free draping with fabric, an art form she has adapted and developed from her studies in classical Japanese drapery. When it comes to clothing design, Christine’s style is recognisable for its collage aesthetics, where pattern and fabric constantly interrupt each other’s spaces. “Material that has been marked by life” is one of Christine’s biggest inspirations.
Christine’s technique takes draping in a new direction by using original materials. Especially by dealing with recycled materials and old fabrics, this is an inspiring method to directly influence the given materials, structures and the individual fit. The designer becomes a sculptor who develops their creation directly on the bust – in harmony with the materials and body shape.
In the three-part live stream workshop students will learn from Christine how to create wonderful new dresses out of used garments and fabric. Each session will present an Upcycling & Draping theme. Materials needed for the long draping weekend are a dress form, draping pins, a sewing machine and the upcycling materials: for example beloved textiles, mangle cloths, men shirts or old linen pieces...
Participants will get a video of the draping demonstrations after each session. The workshop language will be English. The number of participants is limited.
