Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion
Sponsored by American Express
Inspired by Balenciaga’s exquisite designs and the fast changing image of wearable technology, this workshop will focus on embroidery and its intersection with technology, designing a connected embroidery piece with analogue electronics.
During this 3-day workshop participants will learn the basics of analogue and digital electronics with Arduino, and they will design and execute their own connective embroidery piece with a 21” Wacom interactive pen display and a Brother embroidery and sewing machine. Designs will be inspired by the Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion exhibition and under the guidance of Elena Corchero, a multi award-winning innovator specialising in smart materials and wearables.
Suitable for beginners. All materials provided.
