Workshop & Lecture: Yoshiko Wada at the Seattle Art Museum


132_5 garment by Issey Miyake

This July, Yoshiko Wada will be giving a lecture and teaching a 2 day workshop at the Seattle Art Museum, in conjunction with their current exhibition Deco Japan: Shaping Art and Culture, 1920–1945. 

The workshop is limited to only 15 spots, so hurry and grab your tickets now!

From the Seattle Art Museum’s website:

Inspired by Japanese clothing such as kimono, folkwear, and the art of origami, Yoshiko Wada examines how to interpret 2-D material, namely cloth and paper, into 3-D wearable and utilitarian objects through folding, minimum cutting, and straight stitching.

Squares, rectangles, and triangles are modular units that give foundation to the construction and structure of 3-D objects and kinetic wearable sculptures. Vintage kimono, folkwear, utilitarian containers, and cutting-edge fashion items such as Issey Miyake’s“132_5” will be used to illustrate the transformation of dimensions. Wada will teach participants how to create a top, jacket, dress, or bag without conventional patterns.
