An international fashion research project exploring the 'craft of use'

Thank you Wellington & Melbourne

  • Kate and Katelyn | March 27, 2013

Back in the UK after a brief but inspiring trip to the Antipodes. A huge thank you to all of those who participated in the Local Wisdom photoshoots in Wellington and Melbourne and to those who put so much effort into the setting up and running the linked events in both places. The team from Massey in Wellington led by Holly McQuillan and Jen Whitty organised public workshops in felting and zero waste pattern cutting and a public discussion about the Craft of Use. And RMIT in Melbourne, courtesy of the expert organisation of Jo Cramer set up a student knowledge cafe and an 'In Conversation With Kate Fletcher' as part of the Melbourne Fashion Week. The stories and images gathered from the community photoshoots from both locations will be on line here in the next month and the design projects in both place have started in earnest.
