The incredible Inca textiles workshop

Family Sunday: Are lamas laundry-proof or are they dry-cleaning only?
Sun 24-03-2019

The colorful exhibition INCA Dress Code opens up a vibrant world of soft materials, different techniques and great designs.  Get inspired and help us build the Incredible Inca Textiles Workshop!

Drop in workshops!
4-10 years

  • Design your own dress code and create a prototype using a peg doll
  • Get your hands wet and start felting
  • Learn weaving … in a matchbox!
  • ‘Spool knitting’ – sounds fun, how does that go again?

And we’re just getting started – see it big! Try different textile and fiber techniques: finger knitting! crochet! weaving! macramé!…  Your experiments are the building blocks for the central sculpture we will be shaping throughout the day.

Brussels in stitches!

  • The ladies from Femma Quartier found a lot they can relate to in the exhibition. They’ll bring their fabulous Fez embroidery along – and you can try too!
  • Quartiers brodés: Valérie Provost embroiders a city and she really needs your help. Sewing thread, patches, feathers and lots of imagination: everybody joins in!

What about the littles ones?
They will be contributing with excellent artistic advice and a keen sense of color! Color mixing, sensory boxes and books to discover: they should be well occupied for a while.

EXTRA – Clothes swap!
Bring along your worn (but still wearable) clothing and maybe you’ll leave with something new! Still not exactly what you were looking for? Fix it in our mini - repair café.
