Sep. 27: Sewing Cafe #3

Monday, September 21st, 2015


Learn or teach how to sew or crochet. You can bring old clothes for repair, upgrades or exchange! By learning how to do things ourselves we can consume less and upcycle materials available around us.

Every 4th Sunday of the month we will meet at Basta and make our creative thoughts come true by reusing materials that we find around us using all kinds of tools or so called ultimate weapons against the fashion industry.

Come by any time between 2 and 8pm and join the fun!

You can bring your own tools and materials. If you don’t have it that’s ok, we have some to share (such as sewing machine, sewing tools, crocheting needles, yarn, fabrics etc.)

There will be at least one sewing machine (maybe two) ready to use.

You can bring old clothes for an exchange, repair, upgrades and so on (so many options). This time there will be some clothes available for exchange.

Let’s share our thoughts and skills and inspire each other in fabric creation.

There will be tea, coffee and some snacks.

No entrance fee – We happily accept donations for materials, snacks and drink

May 19: DIY Workshop: Bee-friendly Seedbombs

Saturday, May 2nd, 2015

Learn or teach how to make seedbombs – small balls made up of a clay, compost soil and seeds!

This time we will focus on choosing seeds of bee-friendly plants.

After we are done with seedbombs, there will be a short movie screening about the importance of seeds – SEEDS OF FREEDOM

Come and join us any time and feel free to learn or teach, discuss, have a drink, watch a movie…

No entrance fee – donations for materials, drinks, snacks are welcome!

What material will we use?
If you have some seeds that we could use, bring them!
Let’s choose our seeds carefully (bee-friendly, native plants, not GM…)
And feel free to share your knowledge on which plants are good option and what are the best areas to do seedbombing!
If you have some spare compost soil, you can bring it.
We will use red powdered clay. Of course local clay is the best option. If you have it, you can bring it and share it with us.
Honeybees are disappearing drastically around the world. And the impact honeybees have on the human population and the environment is far more crucial than we may think. They facilitate pollination for most plant life. Most of the food you consume is available because of bees.

Why bees are disappearing:

There is hope. By planting bee-friendly native plants we provide diversity and food for the bees!

Approximate programme:

A skill passed down to us from our Slovenian parents,
From a place where DIY is the culture.

Many people in Slovenia spend their free time growing and harvesting food,
preserving and sharing with each other.
With this process, the vegetables can last up to 2 years.

If you can, bring your vegetables and jars.
Well cleaned jars! You can even boil them.
You can also boil your vegetables at home and bring them to the workshop ready for jarring.

Please don’t waste food! And share the knowledge as much as you can!
