ESPACE FXMME: GETTING SOFTER (PATCHWORK)
In the frame of ‘Getting Softer’ project, since November 2021, Espace Fxmme is practicing weaving, embroidery and patchwork making as a process of sharing skills, memories and stories of our bodies in diaspora/moves. We are proud of how the process of weaving and stitching could also create a strong sisterhood among us and let us feel as a community that can be inviting and being invited to share and learn. Since last year, on various occasions, Espace Fxmme members have hosted and traveled to various places, inside and outside of Belgium, where they share their needles and threads with others to stitch sisterhood while they share stories, and experience the feeling(s) of joy, healing, and solidarity together. In process of co-creations, our small community of mixed origins is a gesture of transnational feminist which is a necessity in this world that experiencing mass migration and globalization. Our stitches are small but important to fight marginalizing, controlling or ignoring women and non-binaries bodies.
This patchwork workshop is a slow and intimate process of gentle hospitality, co-creation, knowledge sharing and friendly networking (socializing) among the Fxmme Space women.
- Workshop from 4pm till 8pm at Globe Aroma
