The Word Dress
A new fairytale for adults commissioned by Litfest from Claire Massey, in a gown made entirely from books, by Jennifer Pritchard Couchman.
It’s not all weddings this autumn in my studio. This saturday sees the unveiling of a special commissioned gown that I have be making for my Storey neighbours, Litfest, as part of their Literature festival. Made entirely out of the pages of a book – Angela Carter’s Book of Fairy Tales – the gown will be worn by author Claire Massey, who will be reading a special commissioned fairy tale. Come and check it out at the Storey Creative Industries Centre on Saturday 16th at 6.30pm. If you can’t make it, the gown, alongside some of my traditional bridal gowns will be on display in the Thomas Storey Gallery for the following fornight.
