I am teaching many textile techniques on a Tuesday @The Gallery, one of which is costume and corsetry. I am using this fashion item and its elements of design as inspiration for many different projects. See my daily blog for the other projects and some of the experiences I have as an artist.
The surgical corset or under garment has been around for centuries and this video which is astonishing in some respects of how women choose to adapt their lives to fashion.
