Queer needlework circle – embroidery
they | them
11:00 - 12:30
Join the Queer Needlework Circle in an embroidery workshop. In this session we’ll cover the basics of embroidery, and you'll be invited to embroider a mark of your identity on your own clothes, or the clothes of others. What signifies your Queer identity and how do you make this visible? The space will offer you to sit down, relax, have a conversation whilst doing communal craftwork.
Theodorus Johannes (they / them) is a designer, researcher and storyteller. Since 2017, they have been making the online documentary series “Community Dressing”, in which the differences and similarities between Dutch regional costumes and today's fashion are investigated. Theodoor examines fashion as a complex but powerful form of communication, in which they often highlight themes such as identity and authenticity. Communities, folklore and textile crafts are central to their design practice.
