Workshops during State of Fashion

From June 3rd until July 10th the international fashion biennale, State of Fashion, will be in Arnhem. Hul le Kes takes part in this event with the Recovery Garden. In this garden, right in the middle of Park Sonsbeek, Hul le Kes will give at least one workshop per week. Read more about it below and book your ticket now! There are workshops for kids and for adults. 

Workshop (adults) - € 2,50 - 3 hours

During this workshop Hul le Kes will tell you about dyeing processes and teach you about the Hul le Kes way of natural dyeing. Why is natural dyeing so interesting? What are its disadvantages? And how does it differ from chemical dyeing? Dyeing with plants has its own challenges, Hul le Kes will give you an introduction about these challenges and will change your perspective on color. 

At the end of this workshop you know about a few different kinds of plant-dyeing techniques for textiles and you have dyed your own piece of clothing.

Bring for this workshop

  • 1 or 2 of your own garments, light in color (preferably white). The garment should be made from a natural, plant based, material* such as cotton or linen. 
  • your own snack/food

Workshop (kids) - Free - 2 hours - minimum age: 10 years

Hul le Kes will go on a treasure hunt with the children at the Recovery Garden and Park Sonsbeek; looking for the best things to dye with. During this workshop Hul le Kes will tell about dyeing textiles with plants. How can you do that? Every child can bring his/her own piece of clothing to dye and decorate with plants. A fun, creative and nice way to bring your old piece of clothing back to life. 

Bring for this workshop

  • 1 of your own garments, light in color (preferably white). The garment should be made from a natural, plant based, material* such as cotton or linen. 
  • your own snack/food

*Do not bring a garment made of animal-derived materials, this asks for a different kind of dyeing process. Polyester and nylon clothes will not absorb the pigments of plant dyes. Please pay attention to the material of your garment.
