Inivited to host a workshop at the Textile Design department at Academy of Art Berlin Weissensee, the assignment ' A personal hut' was given. During three days the students were supposed to develop a hut, structure, surface... that would be able to cover themselves. At the last days all 'huts' were captured in the studio by photo and film. This is a compilation of the outcomes.
A hut that reflects your personality, a space where you feel comfortable. This will be an object that presents the material collection you will make during the work- shop. You will create the huts character to highlight the collection’s identity. Consider how your hut will look like? Does it have a specific theme and how will you express it? How will the materials be processed? Think about dyeing, stitching, folding, cutting, printing... Think about the feeling that the materials will express? What do you want to tell?
The 'huts' are made by Irita Ozolina, Franziska Land, Lisa Eichas & Sophie Küsswetter, Marina Wilhelm, Margaret Waiyego Zollinger, Li Joy.
