Helen McGuckin, fashion editorian for Teeth Magazine with photographer Laura McClucky. Model wears McQueen and James Kelly.

Please note, this workshop is now sold out.

Work with fashion stylist Helen McGuckin for an introduction to the intersecting fields of fashion styling, art direction, design and photography.

Taking inspiration from our exhibition Disobedient Bodies: JW Anderson curates The Hepworth Wakefield, McGuckin will be joined by experienced fashion photographer Lucie Crewdson to guide you through designing and creating concepts for a shoot in response to a collection.

Starting with an introduction to their work and an insider’s view of working in the industry, McGuckin and Crewdson will talk through the processes involved in producing a shoot, from considering styles and references within garments, to experimenting with materials, improvising adjustments to garments and creating sets and concepts. You will then experiment with toiles, kalikos, jersey Tshirts and assorted materials and the body to style your own look.

This workshop is aimed at anyone with an interest in the fields of fashion, design, photography, art direction and set design; no prior experience is necessary.
