The workshop will introduce the basic principles and methods to safely and effectively display garments. We will look at display solutions across a range of budget and resource constraints including some quick cheats that are achievable and adaptable. The workshop will include demonstrations and discussions of the following topics:

• Best handling practices for costume preparation and installation

• How to determine the suitability of costume for display

• Deciding on mannequin style

• Taking garment measurements and translating these to a mannequin/form

• Modifying existing mannequins (with additive methods)

• The use of underpinnings to provide support and correct interpretation of garments.

• There will also be morning tea supplied.
