Pasi Räbinä has worked for over 30 years in Finland as a costume designer for the stage. A stage costume is designed intentionally, focusing and framing the identity of a person, but it must also corroborate the performance content. Stage costumes may deceive spectators, and painted, printed, and dyed costumes enable us to examine their illusion as a mood from a certain era, style, or costume. This volume presents modern, up-to-date working methods and techniques in creating unique fabrics. Its objective is to add and share knowledge of the possibilities offered by printing and dyeing fabrics, and to develop these techniques to meet current needs within the performative arts.
