Building Beyond Borders – Workshop (Pil)ow Tarp
8 June @ 10:00 - 14:00Free
Don’t know what to do with your old clothes? Always wanted to learn to sew? Or just interested in creating your own pillow to take home? This workshop will teach you how to make your own pillow from recovered textile in no time. We will be using both pre- and post-consumer textile waste. Pre-consumer textile waste consists of materials generated during industrial processing of textiles such as scraps, damaged materials, samples and more. In this case we will be using tarpaulin leftovers for the pillowcases. The shreds are from recovered post-consumer textile waste. Post-consumer textiles include end-use products, such as items returned or discarded by consumers.
Duration: 4 hours (10:00 – 14:00)
Max. 10 participants (12 years or older)
Language: English, French, Dutch
Address: Parckfarm – Boulevard du Jubilé, 1080 Brussels (BE)
Good to know: we provide the textile needed for the cover and the filling but if you have some old clothes to stuff the pillow yourself, feel free to bring it. You can buy lunch, freshly prepared by ‘Cuisine Voisine’ at Parckfarm.
Subscription is free of charge
