re/touches: workshop organised by Constant

In the weekend of the 17th of December we will look at the act of
repairing. We focus on textile and clothing, looking how something is
woven, stitched together, consisting of threads and layers, and how these
structures break, wear and tear with a body inside.

The Friday afternoon from 14 to 17h Abla who works as a volunteer in the
Vaartkapoen repair and retouche atelier
(http://www.vaartkapoen.be/socecnaai.htm) will show us the work they do.
She will also show a technique for repairing.

In the weekend we will alternate looking at this wear and tear, share
stories, exhibit images and learn to repair, with the advice of professional seamstresses...

If you want to enroll and for more details on this programme please
contact wendy [attt] constantvzw.org

Repairing requires an understanding of the item you want to work on.
How far would you go in repairing coveted item of clothing?
What parts of clothes are fragile?
Where does an item of clothing wear and tear?
what are fragile points? What is the relationship with your body and
your activity?

Repairing prolongs the life of a manufactured item, something not really
stimulated in these times of fast consumption.
This workshop is meant to let us learn repairing techniques from each
other as this place of meeting is a way of transmitting knowledge. These repair techniques were
previously more taught in a family context, because clothes were rare
and precious .
We would like to talk about this subject and work together.
Bring your favourite reparations
How did you learn to repair?
Do you have favourite methods?
Did you learn specific techniques for particular items of clothing?

re/touches: Atelier organisé par Constant

Le week-end du 17 décembre nous nous intéresserons de plus près àl’acte de réparer. Nous nous concentrerons sur le textile et l’habillement, en regardant comment quelque chose est tissé, cousu, les fils et les couches, et comment ces structures cassent, se trouent et se déchirent, quand elles sont portées par un corps.

Le vendredi apres-midi de 14 à17h Abla qui travaille comme bénévole a l’atelier de retouche et réparation du Vaartkapoen http://www.vaartkapoen.be/socecnaai.htm , nous montrera leur travail. Elle montrera aussi une technique de réparation.

Durant le week-end, nous nous intéresserons aux trous et aux déchirures, on se racontera des histoires et on verra ensemble des images ...
Si vous voulez vous inscrire et pour plus de détails sur ce programme, veuillez contacter Wendy [attt] constantvzw.org

Jusqu’où iriez-vous pour réparer un habit qui vous est cher? Quelles parties d’un vêtement sont fragiles? Où se déchire et se troue un habit? Quels sont ses points fragiles? Quelle est le lien entre votre corps et vos activités?

Réparer prolonge la vie des objets, ce qui est quelque chose qui n’est pas fort encouragé en ces temps de consommation rapide. Cet atelier a pour but d’apprendre les techniques de réparation des uns et des autres. Des techniques anciennement transmises dans le cadre familial car les vêtements étaient rares et donc precieux. On voudrait discuter de tout cela et travailler ensemble.
Amenez vos réparations favorites.
Comment avez-vous appris a réparer?
Quelles sont vos methodes préférées?
Vous avez appris des techniques pour des vêtements précis?

re/toucheren: workshop georganiseerd door Constant

In het weekend van 17 december onderzoeken we de kunst van het herstellen. De focus ligt op textiel en kleren. We bekijken hoe iets is geweven, gestikt, we onderzoeken de verschillende naden en lagen en hoe die structuren verslijten, loskomen en scheuren wanneer ze een lichaam in zich dragen.

Vrijdag van 14 tot 17u toont Abla ons hoe zij werkt. Abla werkt als vrijwilligster in het herstel- en retoucheer atelier van de Vaartkapoen (http://www.vaartkapoen.be/socecnaai.htm)

Tijdens het weekend kijken we naar dragen en gedragen stukken, delen verhalen, tonen beelden...

Meer info over deze workshop en inschrijven kan via wendy [attt] constantvzw.org

Iets herstellen vraagt begrip van het voorwerp dat je wil herstellen.
Hoe ver ga je in het herstellen van een kledingstuk?
Welke delen van kleding zijn fragiel?
Waar verslijt of scheurt een kledingstuk?
Wat is de relatie tussen je lichaam en je activiteit?

Iets herstellen verlengt het leven van het gefabriceerde voorwerp, iets dat niet meteen wordt aangemoedigd in tijden van snelle consumptie.
Deze workshop is bedoeld om hersteltechnieken van elkaar te leren, samenkomen is een manier om kennis door te geven. De technieken werde vroeger eerder aangeleerd in een familiale context, want kleding was zeldzamer en daarom ook bijzonder.
We willen hierover praten en samenwerken.
Breng je favoriete herstelstukken.
Hoe leerde jij iets te herstellen?
Heb je favoriete methodes?
Leerde je specifieke technieken voor specifieke kledingsstukken?
