Riina O was invited to Denmark to run the glove making workshop at Kolding Design Institute for the Fashion and Accessories MA students.
What a lovely dedicated bunch they were!
Within the 5-day practical workshop the students studied about the history of gloves and what an important role they have played throughout the ages. They got to practice hand stitching on leather and learned to work with a pattern adjusting it to their own hand size. The students mastered the skill of hand stitching by making a trial glove – essential to see the fitting before making the final pair of gloves, involving their creativity and imagination.
Spreading the skills, the craft of hand making gloves will go on…
