WORKSHOP 2- Fabric Manipulation

The second workshop is all about using fabric, thread and needle to create a wrist pin cushion.

The cushion was really easy and fast to do since we are rather more experienced in doing much more difficult sewing tasks in our past courses. In creating this cushion, we used gathering technique using a fabric band and a garter. The cushion itself was stuff with old pillow filling. The crucial step in this product-making is incorporating a cardboard between the band and the cushion for safety from pins.

Luckily, my product won the best output.

I was a little disappointed because the art direction was really limited. We were not able to discover other manipulation techniques than gathering (which is very common). We could have done more patching or combining different fabrics to come up with more creative stuff. On the brighter side, the workshop went really smooth.

WORKSHOP 1-Fabric Construction

The kick off for our series of workshops session for Apparel Accessory course was Fabric Construction. It is basically manipulating yarn or thread to come up with another product.

The group thought us a popular Chinese fabric construction called the panchang.

Using a thick rubber foam, pins and threads, we were able to come up with our own panchangs.

After the workshop, we were asked to interpret our design. I, D and Danica called this Life and Death.

This is a close up of our final output. We got a perfect score for this.Hooray!

These are the overall products of the whole class after the workshop.

The first workshop was really fun although the group has a little difficulty in demonstrating the knots. They could have thought of improvising a bigger scale for demonstration so that the steps are clear. The workshop is also helpful in apparel design since the techniques they taught are very applicable especially to Chinese-inspired collections.

The workshop is great knowing that they’re the first presenters.
