Worn Workshop with Abigail Jubb and Morag Seaton
26 Aug 2021 7pm - 8:15pm
Worn’s virtual Wardrobe Workshop series invites you to reveal, rethink and revalue your relationships with your clothes. Through a series of Worn Archive insights, interactive activities and discussion, covering clothing-related themes from identity to sustainability, we will ask you to consider and share the stories of your own clothes and clothing experiences. We hope that this perspective-changing workshop will help you to celebrate the various values hidden within your wardrobe, so that more of the clothes we own might become truly worn.
Please note, our Wardrobe Workshops are interactive and are therefore limited to 8 participants to ensure that everyone can take part in activities and discussion.
Co-founded by Abigail Jubb and Morag Seaton, Worn Workshop produces creative projects about people’s relationships with their clothing. In April 2020, Worn began collecting and sharing the stories of our clothes and concepts from identity to sustainability. This work has since developed through their production of a series of Worn projects as well as commissions for fashion industry, education, community, arts and culture contexts, including: research, workshops, interviews, talks, consultation, publications and storytelling. All of these outcomes contribute to the Worn Archive: an ongoing collection of clothing stories. This, in turn, informs and inspires all of Worn’s future projects, which share insights that can change the way we design, make and wear clothes.
The Worn Archive is an ongoing collection of clothing stories and experiences that covers everything from everyday acts of dressing to the complex web of clothing, individuality and society. We use this unique resource to share important insights on Worn's platforms, inspire our ongoing projects and inform our organisational practice.
We see our Wardrobe Workshops as opportunities to continually add to the variety of voices represented by the Worn Archive, which we want to be an inclusive resource that celebrates diversity through the universally accessible yet individually distinctive medium of clothing.
During this period of social distancing and lockdown due to Coronavirus we advise that you check directly with the organiser of this event that it is going ahead as publicised.
