I am in the process of developing sustainable oriented events with fellow costume designer, Megan Quarles.
In the past couple of years, I have been working to align my personal interest in sustainability with my profession as a costume designer and maker--how can I re-imagine current practices and re-interpret materials to design in a more sustainable way?
This question lead to almost a year’s worth of research and interviews with fellow costume designer Megan Quarles to investigate what sustainability means to our fellow theatre-makers and assess how we can contribute to the conversation in a meaningful way.
Most recently, we spoke at @FABSCRAP to share ways to create less waste while creating.
We discussed ways to re-imagine thrift-store finds to create period costumes.
