LECTURE SERIES AT CAMDEN ARTS CENTRE LED BY MASTER PRINTMAKER FAYE MCNULTY AND CULTURAL THEORIST DR. SIAN WESTON
What universal issues emerge from Duro Olowu’s curation of Making & Unmaking? ‘Let Me Tell You a Story’ will draw out key elements highlighted in the exhibition, including cultural appropriation, cultural identity, textiles and protest, collecting, collections and bricolage, and gender stereotypes. Each week, participants will cover two distinct areas in order to understand the wider meaning of the works included in the exhibition. In the final seminar, participants will have an opportunity to take part in a ‘show and tell’ session, where they deconstruct a treasured object from their own collection.
McNulty and Weston take polar opposite positions in terms of ‘making’ and ‘un-making’:
McNulty is an acknowledged master of making – she understands construction and the measures needed to create objects.
Weston uses fashion and textiles to deconstruct meta-themes that reflect a wider society – she picks at the seams to understand the role of fashion, craft and photography within the cultural landscape.
Pete approached Faye with a project to illustrate a brew guide for Cowboy Coffee on bandanas. His first introduction to textile screen printing, Pete mastered the process - easily overcoming the challenge of a clear print from a finely detailed design.
The design was discharge printed on hand dyed indigo cotton bandanas and is currently being developed as a sellable product.
Zoe works for a respected UK based fashion brand, developing the textiles for the ready to wear line. Zoe approached Faye to develop her textile print knowledge, specifically on advanced print processes that involve dyes and caustics. This will help immensely with Zoe's work and communication with the Italian mills she liaises with.
Faye created this workshop as part of the Lambeth Open at London Printworks Trust.
Designed as a drop-in workshops for anyone and everyone to upcycle for a fashion-forward Autumn. Traid provided the rejected knitwear, scarves and ties they were unable to stock in their stores due to moth holes or imperfections.
Using screen printing techniques and materials seen on the catwalks at the time, discarded items were revitalised using foiling heat press techniques to preserve and improve the garments.
Over the three days people came to visit us in the Royal Festival Hall on the Southbank, just above the hopping Torch Club and created some of the most wonderful vintage inspired headscarves, neckerchiefs, tights and handkerchiefs.
Using a variety of collage, painting and illustrations provided by Sophie Herxheimer and Laura Knight, vintage clad visitors ranging from four years old to sixty-odd years had a chance to print onto synthetics.
