Well... What were they Wearing? Protective adornment

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The presentation of marginalized bodies is often cited as justification for violence against us. How can we use fashion to protect our personal space. This session will explore strategies for dynamic adornment to increase protection, reflection, and expression on our favorite clothes. We`ll learn to make hammered metal armor, add reflective bling, and create protective talismans. Bring clothes to embellish! Limited thrifted items will be available.
