Masterclass by Damien Poulain Before the thought, there is the dream

During this masterclass, French artist Damien Poulain challenges you to create your own cover. You will paint on textiles and create a garment that blows up and brings out your inner world.

Cloths are a means to convey a message, a protection, a statement to be part of a group. The textile is nothing until it takes the form of a painting, a rug, a mask or a garment.
