Drink & Draw [VIRTUAL]: Rococo: Wearable Renditions

This September, Drink & Draw explores Rococo! We will be working through modern renditions of this artistic style featuring the classic elements of nature and floral patterns depicted through soft colors and curvy, botanical shapes.

Guest Artist: Grace Makuch

Originating in France during the 1730s, Rococo was an artistic style that sought to push the boundaries of the formal and geometric decorative style during that time. As an homage to that exceptionally ornamental style, Grace Makuch will walk us through a modern approach to Rococo by applying it’s whimsical design to clothing. For this event, she will be sharing the ornamental, abstracted elements of her artist practice by cutting out botanic shapes drawn on contact paper, applying them to t-shirts, and then bleaching those shapes into the fabric through bleach painting and drawing with bleach pens. Together, we will create unique wearables inspired by the art of Rococo with a modern twist.

  • Blank T-shirts or any article of clothing or fabric
