Iwishiwasa… costumes by Tamsin Thorne
On Saturday 24th November, we are hosting two magical workshops with costume designer, Tamsin Thorne.
Use our new exhibition ‘Where the Wonderful Happens’, a Winter Circus of make-believe as inspiration – peep shows, boxing kangaroos, strongmen, snow globes & trapeze artists – to make a show-stopping, fantabulous headress! Wear it for all your Christmas celebrations…
A small, stunning collection of Tamsin’s Iwishiwasa costumes pictured here are for sale at The Art Shop.
