The Workshop

Have you ever wanted to learn about the habitat, behavior, specific needs, and expressions of an animal or plant? This workshop experiments with learning to interpret the voice of species by creating and shaping a care manual. Using the facilities of the CostumeLab, you learn to give expression and life to your chosen species by using techniques such as block printing, transfer, embroidery and appliqué on used T-shirts and reshape them into a statement piece honouring the plethora of species.

Conny Groenewegen

After completing a study in fashion and visual art, Conny Groenewegen started making drawings. Her research traces back to the origins of methods: revealing and re-establishing the sparkle of manufacturing before the fashionable took its toll. She sheds a new light on production, whilst searching for what is essential and appropriate for organizations and brands. She does so by taking away barriers, preparing reinvigorated procedures for the next step, ready to interact with the world.
