Bananas are not happy in a plastic bag 🙁 Three hundered plastic bags are used per year on average. Lots of them are used during veggie shopping.

Fruits & veggies are heaps more happy in cotton re-usable bags 🙂 Ladies and gents, let’s get crafty for the Greater Good and produce some planet friendly VEGGIE BAGS, by re-cycling fabrics.

Plastic-Free Tuesday organizes together with DIY Workshop Amsterdam a sewing cafe at September 19th at The Basement to make some Veggie Bags to give out in local markets or vegetable stores!

1. We have got the sewing machines! What you could bring is your old fabrics à light fabrics are the best. Old curtains for example! Ask your granny’s!

2. We can learn from each other! Never worked with a sewing machine before but wanna know-how? Awesome! This is your chance. We’d love to exchange our sewing skills with you.

Jul. 18-19: A gathering of NOMADS

June 1st, 2015 by A Inimiga

The first edition of NOMADS Gathering will take place at The Vondelbunker Amsterdam on JULY 18 & 19, one of what we hope will be many worldwide regular gatherings,where you will be able to meet the broad nomadic community and share with them a couple of days in your long road. It is a totally volunteer-organized event, for which we need help from all people who want to join in to make this happening even greater. This event is supported by the local collective Schijnheilig .

Have you ever thought how cool it would be to come to one of those bonfires, after a long road, and just sit and listen to the stories of all travelers? Just like old times, when wanderers and nomads would roam the roads guided by the sun, to stop right there where the night befell them.

Well, that’s what we’re doing here! A space where all NOMADS can learn and improve most skills needed on the road, by gathering “experts” to present their experiences and holding workshops. There’ll be local and travelling artists performing, evenings for socializing, and loads of tips for Nomadic life. There will be everything you can think of, and if we haven’t thought of it, feel free to do it yourself.

REGISTRATION FOR THE EVENT WILL BE LAUNCHED IN JULY – Limited space available!!!

All info is on https://amsterdamnomadsgathering.wordpress.com/

Jun. 7: Upcycle Workshop #2

June 1st, 2015 by A Inimiga

o-BANKSY-facebook

[Excerpt from Agazine #2]

“Industrialization (…) enabled the gradual participation of all classes of society in the fashion scene.
However, the dictates of haute couture still dominated…”
Create your own, non-industrialized, fashion style by swapping, upgrading, repairing and creating your own clothes/furniture/accessories.
We have enough already, there is no need to consume!

UPCYCLE WORKSHOP #2
June 7th, 14:00-17:30 @ Occii

A workshop for everybody who feels a kick to make something special out of waste or stuff with which you have a special connection…
Think of small furniture, clothes, utensils, artifacts, stuff you don’t want to throw away but deserves a second life or a total make-over.
We are ready to help you make your concepts come true!
Take from home 3 items max. and use our tools and skills to make something unique.
You can use sewing machines, tools, extensions, decorations, paint, give away shop items, and many more things to pimp and transform your favorite stuff into an extraordinary product to take home after or swap at the spot…
Bring your friends and fantasy.

Offered by the swap-partycrew: Aga Flo, Mirna DIY, Michalis Weggeefwinkel, and Eri Kinderpret/ -this is not a kids workshop…- but bigger kids can try.
