Trash Couture Costume Workshop

Create an absolutely original costume out of repurposed and salvaged materials like cardboard, bubble wrap, plastic shopping bags, and single-use water bottles!

Explore the many textures that can be achieved with trashy materials, and learn how to design an  understructure for support. Assemble your creation with duct tape, hot glue, and staples— no sewing required! 

Attend both days to design and build something epic, or drop in for one day to make a mask or a set of horns.

Recommended for adults and kids 14+, as we will be using heat tools and sharp blades.

Before/After

WeftWorks returns to the Philadelphia Fringe Festival with Before/After, a brand new show featuring costumes, props, and puppet creatures made out of discarded objects and repurposed packaging materials. The production is divided into two parts. The first, Before/, explores how our hyper-connected, on-demand culture impacts our relationship to self, others, & nature. Why, when anything can be acquired with a click, do we still feel empty? The second part, /After, imagines the resurgence of nature in a post-human world— an all-too-possible outcome given the environmental destruction that is powered by unchecked global capitalism.

The cast includes dancers Caitlin Green, Shizu Homma, and Olivia Wood, as well as theater artist Rebecca Love. The production also features video by filmmaker Chris Hallock.  Artistic Director Sarah Carr designed the production and created the costumes, set, and props using bubble wrap, recycled cardboard boxes, discarded water bottles, and repurposed textiles. The emphasis on reclaimed materials is meant to provide a visual account of the environmental cost of consumerism, but also shows how, with creativity and ingenuity, a new world can be constructed from the things we thoughtlessly discard.

Tickets are $18, $13 for students and under 25, available now at http://fringearts.com/event/beforeafter
