Since the project’s founding in 2014, we have held Make-Your-Own- JUMPSUIT workshops where we lead participants through the steps of creating their own monogarment.
These workshops teach practical and technical sewing instruction while fostering a larger conversation about sustainability, the emergence of fast fashion and worker’s rights. It is through the intentional weaving together of these narratives that a solidarity with the garment workers who make our clothing can be achieved. We believe that reform is possible by collapsing the distance between consumption and production.
Workshops have been held across the nation at: MoMA New York, Machine Project Los Angeles, Bard Graduate Center, the Hyde Park Art Center Chicago, Haverford College in Haverford Pennsylvania, Central Features Gallery in Albuquerque New Mexico and numerous others.
