Patterns, prints and paintings do not only hang on the wall, but can also adorn, drape and be worn on the body. Learn new sewing skills, master the sewing machine, create a mood board for inspiration and design a wearable artwork.
While the making of any article of clothing or other wearable object typically involves aesthetic considerations, the term wearable art implies that the work is intended to be accepted as a serious and unique artistic creation or statement.
