Form on Words


Various words are picked out of interviews with shopkeepers about their work clothes. Based on these words but without knowing their contexts, children are asked to imagine and create their own designs using old clothes. Their designs are taken back to the originators of the words—the shopkeepers—who then try putting them on.
