Turning guilt and shame into wearable art

The Fashion Show, a women’s art and wellness project sponsored by the Yellow Springs Arts Council, aims to provide women an opportunity to explore the themes of guilt, shame and resentment by creating three pieces of wearable art: the Clock of Guilt, Mask of Resentment and Gloves of Shame. Participants will take part in every-other-week workshops that begin this Sunday, Nov. 15, from 2 to 4 p.m. at 144 E. Limestone Street. The event is free to any woman who wants to participate.

The culmination of the project will be a fashion show where the wearable art will be presented, to take place during Women’s Voices Out Loud in March, 2016.

The purpose of exploring these sometimes difficult emotions is self-understanding, according to organizer Cathy Paige.

“We’re complex human beings,” she said. “Through this exploration we’ll gain a deeper understanding of our lives as women.”
