August 9th 2pm – 4pm
Workshop with Sophie Chapman and Philippa Taylor.
Exploring self-actualisation through a buzzfeed themed obstacle course and suit decoration class.
Now more than ever it is so important that you feel capable of being the person you can be. Reach for the stars, hold your head high and never give up. During the Aspiration Suits workshops participants will follow an obstacle course of decisions and personality trait tests in order to gather all the materials to be all they can be. Starting off in identical white jumpsuits, inside the box, progressing up the life ladder, ascending the career goal mountain, and crossing the choppy relationships sea.
This workshop is about celebrating you, and exploring why self-help is so on trend right now! A performance of the self, outwardly wearing all the badges and tools and components of who you want to be. The idea came from our own desire to be artists/designers and not really knowing how to actually make that happen. We realised the kinds of rituals you perform to feel more like what you want to be, the uniforms you provide yourself, and the tools you think you need.
At Aspiration Suits we don’t want to tie you up in a neat little package, not every aspect, desire of trait you posses makes perfect sense in relation to others. You may feel that you are best described as a zoo-sprung leopard mechanic that would like to save babies from burning buildings. You may feel most comfortable thinking of yourself as a paragliding spaghetti aficionado that spends their down time in Tesco car parks. A bull-fighting vitamin D expert or an orange sellers daughter that’s into BDSM. And so on.
Come and join us. There will be a choreographed celebration dance at the end to a Back Street Boys anthem.
There will be a very small cost for the suits but you can take them home and wear them to job interviews afterwards- so invest in your future.
The workshop will be 2pm – 4pm and the gallery will be open after.
