An arm and a leg…
The Textile Lab at Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library recently mounted 40 costumes from the Netflix drama in the exhibition Costuming THE CROWN. As the focus of the exhibit is meant to evoke the work of the designers, dressmaker style forms were chosen. The forms had stock arms, however the curatorial team wished for arms to be invisible. As the forms were also without legs, Fosshape® would be the answer to our conundrum. This tip session focuses on the things we learned along the way and the tips and tricks gained in the process. Lisa Stockebrand of the Philadelphia Museum of Art Textile lab guest starred in our lab for 10 days. During her time here, Lisa patterned a set of legs and arms, which would be used for the slumping forms, setting a protocol for manufacture and we were off and running.
