At Hul le Kes we like to change the system in a most holistic way, meaning we also like to involve education in the things we do. Last Sunday we did so by giving a workshop about mending and repairing your own clothes for the ‘weekend school’ by ‘Leukomteleren’. But in much more aspects of our daily business education takes part. To give you some examples we wrote down some of our recent educational programs. Interested in our educational programs? Contact Sebastiaan Kramer for more information (contact information can be found below).
Since the very beginning our manufacturing studio has been working together with the local institute for secondary vocational education; Rijn IJssel. The manufacturing studio was set up not only to get the manufacturing of clothes back to the Netherlands again, but also to gain knowledge about manufacturing within the country again and to educate students. With Rijn IJssel we do special programs, we give lessons about menswear and we help their final year students with their graduation collection.
Next to that we have many interns at our studio which gain knowledge about the making of clothes at our studio. These students come from all over the Netherlands, but also from for example Germany or Norway.
Next to that we also give lectures to university students. In the past year we have been giving guest lectures to students at Radboud University, Wageningen University, Amsterdam Fashion Institute, ArtEZ University of the Arts and HAN University of Applied Sciences. Here we talk about new approaches to management and our current system. Sometimes more from a fashion perspective, but often in a general way to show alternatives and to talk about a circular economy.
