Drop-In Workshops for Teens: John Waters Costume Design

Drop-In Workshops for Teens: John Waters Costume Design

Learn about how costume designers like Van Smith have utilized discarded materials to create costumes for films!

The Education team invites teens to join museum educators on the third Friday of every month to be inspired by the museum’s exhibitions and screenings, explore the museum, hang out, and get creative.

This month’s Drop-in Workshop is John Waters Costume Design! Inspired by the John Waters Costume Design gallery featuring Van Smith’s designs using found “trash” materials, teens can create their own costume designs using discarded materials. We will be joined by Jillian Clark, founder of textile waste agency, Roboro, who will explore the use of found materials in costume design and how this practice can be sustainable!

Jillian Clark is a costume designer, sustainable fashion advocate and entrepreneur. She founded her textile waste agency Roboro, in 2017, with the mission to 'End Textile Waste'. Discouraged by the amount of waste she saw on tv & film sets, Jillian was inspired to change how she approached her career as a designer, and work to make Hollywood a more sustainable industry.

Meet us on Friday, April 19, from 4:30pm to 6:30pm, in the Shirley Temple Education Studio on the museum’s Lower Level. Workshops are designed for teens ages 14 and up. Snacks will be provided.

All workshops are free with museum admission and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Museum admission is free for youth ages 17 and under.

Check back soon for upcoming workshop themes.
