Slow Fashion Lab - ART YARN
Workshop: turning waste in to self-customized yarn
The Slow Fashion Lab, curated by textile artist and lecturer Aprina Murwanti, inspires visitors to take concrete action towards a more sustainable way of dealing with clothes and textiles. It presents examples of sustainable fashion, traditional and local practices from Indonesia that are attentive of the people and environment involved. Visitors to the Slow Fashion Lab are invited to feel, see and learn about sustainable alternatives to fast fashion and engage in DIY-culture. The slow fashion movement is presently gaining significance as a counter-model to so-called fast fashion.
Yarn is the result of spinning an amount of fiber together. The usual yarn uses uniform fibers to conform to industrial standards. However through this workshop we can create our self-customized yarn by combining regular fibers with interesting materials, such as leaves, twigs, fabrics, and fringes. This workshop will be conducted by Nidiya Kusmaya and also Sabrina Ilma.
Nidiya is the textile artist behind Old Tjikko, and one of the participants of our Slow Fashion Lab. She is currently working as one of mentor at the Young Creator Indonesia Fashion Institute (YCIFI).
Sabrina is currently teaching garment and fashion Program at Politeknik STT Tekstil Bandung and also fashion design program at LaSalle College International, Jakarta.
