8 June Ilse schoneveld: demonstration second life jewelry - jewelry out of cans
Time: 14.00 - 17.00
No max capacity
Second Life Jewelry is a jewelry line made from cans collected from public spaces in Arnhem. Visual artist Ilse Schoneveld has been annoyed for years by all the cans on the street and has found an interesting solution. Her work began as an awareness-raising project about the problem of litter, and in the meantime the product line with African-looking jewelry is developing further and further. The concept is based on urban mining, the mining of metal in the city. Second Life Jewelry contributes to a second life for a beverage can and a second chance for nature and the city: Her way of caring for environment and beauty. With great patience and craftsmanship, cans are cut into long thin strips, which are processed through an ingenious and labor-intensive turning process into colorful and tasteful jewelry. Attention to sustainability thus leads to something special. Second Life Jewelry shows what beautiful jewelry you can make from litter. Colorful jewelry, which is not directly traceable to the unexpected base material. During the State of Fashion there is a demonstration in which the viewer is taken into the production process. Some examples from the collection will be shown; other examples can be found in the Wardrobe. Curious? Come and watch the demonstration of Second Life Jewelry on June 8 between 14:00 and 17:00 in Rozet.

You can use a quilt yourself, leave it to your descendants, or give it to someone who needs a boost.
Each quilt goes its own way with a piece of you in it. In the form of your clothing or of your contribution by quilting a piece. This along with the pieces that everyone else has contributed to the quilt. In this way you not only welcome someone into the world with the quilt, but you also create connection and community.

23 June - Pascale Gatzen/Carolien Evers Linen Project
What does it mean to collectively grow, process and manufacture our everyday textiles and garments by hand? Members of the Shared Stewardship community experience the intimacy, material, agricultural and social processes involved in collectively growing textiles, objects and clothing from seed. With commoning as their guiding principle, they are together implementing a new economic, social and cultural paradigm. Over the course of a year, the Linen Stewards as a group grow and harvest the flax and process the fibers - spinning linen yarns, knitting and/or weaving linen textiles and forming other objects - and ultimately creating individual pieces for personal use. All of these processes are intentionally done by hand. The community operates under a concept of shared stewardship; members share decision space with everyone and everything affected by their activities. As a community, the Linen Stewards are shaping a group agreement and collectively setting priorities that take into account the different values, knowledge, skills and competencies of each member. This includes and values the needs of the earth and creatures and systems they encounter. As stewards share responsibility for all aspects of this process. The costs of, for example, leasing the land, seeds and cultivation expertise are shared equitably by the group. The Shared Stewardship community was initiated by The Linen Project through an open call in early 2020. Participation in the 2021 season was by invitation of existing stewards, subject to a commitment to stewardship for this year-long process. The cultivation activities took place in the first two years at Ekoboerderij De Lingehof, Hemmen. This year we are working at Organic Farm De Horstenhof, Duiven. With a video presentation "how and what" about flax we start the workshop. Participants are invited to spin with a spinning top, work on a small fabric of their own, where the Linen Stewards support you in learning how to make textiles from everyday materials.
26 June workshop Daan Kruijssen: bioplastic lab (kid&parent)
How cool is that: making your own hat or mask from bioplastic! Fun for you and good for nature.
Did you know that there is plastic that is not harmful to the environment? We call it 'bioplastic'. And did you know that you can make beautiful hats and masks from bioplastic? First you make a shape from clay; we call this the mould. Then you heat the plastic, which is then pressed over the mold. Would you like to do this? And would you like to learn something about technology and environmentally friendly plastic? Then sign up for the Bioplastic Lab. Product designer Daan Kruijssen will teach you how to make your hat or mask. You come up with your own mould and you can operate a cool machine under Daan's supervision. And of course we will talk about plastic waste and the environment.
3 July - Workshop Mirte Engelhard: l Sketch Your Story
Mirte Engelhard, fashion designer & social creator is a quirky fashion designer in Klarendal, the fashion district of Arnhem. 'I see fashion as a language to help people express or find their voice'. But clothes are not always worn that way. In our society we are expected to move with the mainstream. And this is reflected in our clothes, which tend to conceal our unique personality rather than show it off. 'I want to design clothes that fit someone's own story'. 'Outline your story'. During this workshop you will learn to transform your story into conceptual fashion illustrations. 'Bring a personal item that has value to you and/or tells more about who you are'. The personal item may be anything, a cup, book, sculpture, clothing, etc. (if the item is fragile or difficult to take along, take pictures with your phone and bring them along). The item you bring will serve as inspiration for your design sketches. We end this workshop with a small presentation of the created illustrations with comments from the participants.
