WIRED OPEN LABS 2019: SHROUD MAKING
hero
  •  The WIRED Lab WELCOMES HELEN DUNNE FROM SHROUD MEMENTO
    AS PART OF THE WIRED OPEN LABS WORKSHOP SERIES 2019

    IN THIS FULL DAY WORKSHOP YOU WILL LEARN:

  • What a shroud is and how it can be used;
    Various shroud decoration methods most be tting the recipient; and

    The range of creative approaches to making a shroud.

Who Should Attend?

Introductory class, suitable for beginners.

What You'll GET

By the end of the workshop participants will feel confident about commencing the decorating of a shroud and inviting family, relatives and friends to join them if they so wish. They will have a range of methods to use to apply to their ideas for decoration appropriate for the recipient of the shroud.  Whilst it is possible to complete a simply designed shroud in the workshop time, usually a start is made and participants will then have time to consider what they would choose to decorate a shroud with the methods they have learnt in their home.

Lunch, snacks and refreshments will be provided throughout the day.

What To Bring?

Some materials provided, including sample cloth (approximately 30 x 30 cm) for each person to test various methods, and some thread.
Participants are asked to bring things familiar to them from home such as a loved one's old clothing, perhaps material they wish to use for a shroud or any other items that the intuitively feel could be incorporated.
Participants will be contacted prior to the workshop to determine what materials are best suited for their context.

ABOUT HELEN DUNNE, SHROUD MEMENTO

When my father died, my mother was asked how she wanted him dressed for burial. As there were no suitable clothes available for him an idea came to me to instead use a beautiful covering cloth, a shroud. I constructed a cloth that lay on the dining table for us to sit down and add to, whenever we felt the need. It felt good to share our memories of him, and this experience created the spark that has evolved to be Shroud Memento. As the sole operator of the service, I consult, demonstrate and guide you. I hold qualifications in stained glass, ceramics, painting and drawing, pattern-making and sewing, print making, silversmithing, and more. I have had a career in the arts, and it is the combination of my experience, community mindedness, and artistic skill that form Shroud Memento.
