What is this workshop?


For fans of anime, Japanese Culture and making … join the National Association of Japanese Canadians (NAJC), production designer Michiko Yano-Shuttleworth, and STEAMLabs on March 31st for an introduction to the creative world of Cosplay.


In this workshop, you will receive an overview to materials such as: thermal plastics, foams, woven knit fabrics, and tools used to build costumes and prop
pieces. As a group, we will discuss the potential uses of these materials and showcase various techniques through the use of live demos.


For the remainder of the session, you will have a chance to experiment with these materials and begin designing and prototyping your very own head piece, arm piece, or cape. We strongly recommend coming to the workshop with an idea in mind, so you can start to experiment and make during the workshop.

This workshop is for absolute beginners and experienced makers alike!
