📍DEADLINE 4 SEPTEMBER 2022📍
Open Call for participation in the Fashion Lab.
This workshop is part of the Open Up project and is an introduction to Fashion and Accessories making.
Traditional Arts and Crafts including clothing have centuries of history. How do we come to adapt... it to our needs? How do we apply it in Fashion? Traditional Craft in a new context can give us the prospect of a new branding, relevant to our contemporary living.
Repurposing materials and techniques, images, printing and various other materials we aim to create fashion pieces (clothes, jewelry, bags, etc). Without the burden of the idea of uniting the old with the new.
The aim of this project is for the group of participants to get to know materials and learn new processes of designing and creating from scratch new products and presenting these with the prospect of creating a new personal clothing and accessories line, and marketing this.
Participants will enter a European network of artists and professional trainers and will have the opportunity to make connections in Cyprus and abroad. All participants will receive a certificate of participation at no cost.
The workshop will take place at NiMAC (19, Palias Ilektrikis, 1016 Nicosia), which is located in the Old City Centre of Nicosia, from September 2022, and is free of charge.
