Erasmus+ Corset Making Workshop

Between 11th and 15th of March 2024, we hosted Dr. Elena Marti Ciriquián from the Escuela de Arte y Superior de Diseño de Alicante.

Professor dr. Elena Marti Ciriquián first introduced her EASDA faculty and continued with the history and development of the corset. This was followed by a multi-day corset-making workshop “Corset Reinterpretation”.

At the workshop, the students of 2nd and 3rd year students of Fashion and Textiles Design, learned about the technique of making a corset, which requires a good knowledge of designing and making clothes. With great interest and perseverance, they produced two different models of corsets, which was a great challenge for them, as some of them were encountering this type of technique for the first time.
