Time & Location
About the Event
Places are limited and allocated on a first-come first-served basis.
Get to know sustainable fashion practices by designers from around the globe in this 90 min workshop. In preparation for an interactive wearable performance piece they are currently developing, the design collective Peut-Porter invites you to test with them how to craft alternative QR codes using embroidery, patchwork, screen print and other media.
This workshop is linked to the Fashion Open Studio x COP26 programme and travelling installation in partnership with British Council happening in November in Glasgow during COP26, the United Nations Climate Change Conference. You will be introduced to a diverse cohort of current fashion designers whose practices look at alternative fashion production, and join Peut-Porter in developing textile QR codes to reveal aspects of their design-work.
