Be the one an only – the original of this year’s Burning Man, Shambala orother festival you are planning to visit. Design a dreamy costume no one ever thought about and create it yourself!!! This workshop is special – it’s about you, your idea, your crazy imagination and creative mindset. The theme of this year’s Burning Man is METAMORPHOSES – remember Kafka’s novel and open the world of unreal. Get inspired by Shambala’s enchanted forest or come up with your own idea.
We will be focusing mainly on sewing, but to achieve large and impactful effects, we will be working with anything what serve the purpose – vires, glue gun, lights, technical materials or leather
Muse lab offer all the tools and supplies like thread, elastic, velcro and some fabric leftovers you are welcome to use. All the main material you can buy yourself after the first meeting or we can bring it for you from Vancouver.
Workshop will be split in 4 sessions:
June 4th – Dream, design, get inspired – come with an idea in mind, so you can spend as much time as possible on the details, create mood board or collect pictures from magazines, take photos of things which inspire you. In this session, you will deepen your idea, make a sketch (no worries, its not a drawing competition, we just need to bring the idea to life) and we will discuss the material options – we measure and count how much of material you need and come up with techniques you can use to create your costume.
June 11th – Bring all material you need – we will start with pattern making, cutting and sewing you costume. You are more than welcome to use the studio suplies,but whatever you feel like it could be useful – bring it with you.
June 18th – Work on the costume
June 25th – Last fitting to your body, we help you with pinning and tapering the costume to your shape. Last touches, details and finally the craziest catwalk you have ever seen.
