THE Hunt Museum and the Limerick School of Art and Design are offering young designers the chance to take part in fashion workshops inspired by Ireland’s leading haute couturist. 

As part of the inaugural fashion festival, Unwrap 2018, the Hunt Museum and the fashion department at LSAD are offering fourth, fifth and sixth year school students the chance to take part in design workshops inspired by the designs of Sybil Connolly. 

Selected students will be invited to participate in workshops at both the Hunt Museum and in the design studios at the LSAD campus. 

Using Sybil Connolly’s collection as inspiration, students will produce their own original designs which will then be digitally captured, manipulated and projected onto white t-shirts. 

Students’ finished pieces will then be showcased at an exhibtion at the Hunt Museum in May. To apply for the workshop, students must select a Sybil Connolly design from the museum’s online archive and submit a brief proposal, outlining how they would redesign it, as well as two or three design concepts explaining how they would implement a redesign. Submission deadline is 5pm February 26. For more information, visit www.huntmuseum.com
