De Naaikrans #3: Intercultureel handwerken


De Naaikrans #3: Intercultureel handwerken

17 maart 2021, 19.30 - 21.30 uur


How are colonial structures still woven into today's textile production? How has needlework contributed to community building in different parts of the world? And how is community or culture expressed in needlework?

Migration has traditionally played an important role in the history of textiles. Think of the Silk Road that has been in use since the 5th century BC for the trade in fabrics. Or the cotton plantations in the colonies where slaves were put to work. Experiences that are bound by time and place are translated into patterns, colors and textures, and find their way all over the world.

The Sewing Circle (In Dutch: De Naaikrans), organized by the Feminist Needlework Party [link site] in collaboration with Atria, is a seminar, spa experience and sewing circle all rolled into. In this third edition of the five-part series, we explore how needlework transmits experiences, records histories and connects people through reading, talking and repairing.

In The Sewing Circle #3, various speakers highlight how needlework is used to cope with loss, to pass on stories, to record and connect histories. At the same time, you will learn and practice a repair technique.
