Mask and Headwear Design Workshop – Hillsville

October 23, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Just in time for Halloween, New Year’s Eve and other special occasions!

VMFA Faculty member Annie Temmink will be offering a half-day workshop at The Carter Home. This embodied design course explores shape development and construction for headwear. Annie’s costumes, headwear, and constructed accessories have been awarded the Best New Entrant Award at the World of Wearable Art in Wellington, New Zealand and featured at the Innovative Costumes of the 21st Century: The Next Generation exhibit at A. A. Bakhrushin State Central Theatre Museum in Moscow, Russia. Much of her inspiration comes from her experience studying traditional textile fabrication techniques alongside craft artisans in Indonesia, Japan, India, Ghana, Uganda, Tanzania, and Turkey. She lives in Charlottesville, VA and loves to dance.¬†Using a short visioning exercise and quick bursts of physical making and exploration, students will learn:

  • Quick exercises to generate new ideas that feed into a final headpiece design.
  • Rapid prototyping
  • Building complex shapes from simple ones
  • 3D composition
  • How to achieve proper fit

This is a great course for working into an idea, learning 3D construction and design, and enjoying the pleasure of making something wearable. This course is great for high school and college students, adult art groups, families and community groups with children ages 12 and up.

This program has been funded, in part, by the Paul Mellon Endowment and the Jean Stafford Camp Memorial Fund. The Hale Wilkinson Carter Home Foundation is offering the workshop for free although donations for the Carter Home will be accepted at the door.
