Colectic presents the activities of arts and crafts workshops, aimed to women, and it does not matter if participants are European or come from a third country, all of them are really welcome into our most amazing and creative workshops and “to sew” with us. We will sew clothes, stories, toys or activist announcements related to women's rights.
Every women can come and join us at the Raval’s library to "Coser y contar" [sew and tell stories] A storyteller, Susagna Navó, will lead the workshop which will consist on sewing small pieces of sew small crafts (toys, dolls, purses, scarves ...) that will later be exhibited during the Raval Cultural Festival that will take place in November in Barcelona. During the workshop, Susagna will explain stories and legends, and will invite the participants to do the same. Some of these stories will be recorded and the recordings will be displayed during the Raval Cultural Festival and will be displayed in the digital scratch book.
Some of the women may prefer to join us in a textile activism workshop. Francesca Poggi will be in charge of this. Through the transfer of techniques, mainly embroidery and textile design, the we will lead the creation of individual scarves of common support and a canvas of collective creation, on the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Gender Violence. The pieces will be exhibited during the week of the 25th November in the antic building of art-school of Barcelona (which now is not the Art School anymore, but a hostel of entities where Colectic has its premises) By doing so, we will reach young local women and young migrant women.
