FabricAge Exhibition

On Sunday, the 10th of September during Parcours Maastricht, FabricAge unveiled the first textile creations with an exhibition at Mosae Forum in Maastricht. The textile creations are designed by five fashion designers, six experienced crafts buddies, and made my more than 150 seniors during 250 hours. The starting point for the design was the city of Maastricht; the different neighborhoods and the diversity of inhabitants, but also the power of connection and cohesion. The five designers are Maarten van Mulken, Verena Klein, Ebby Port, IXX Jolijn Fiddelaers and Suzanne Vaessen (Strikks).

FabricAge Following the success of last year’s project LET'S (AD)DRESS THE PEOPLE, FASHIONCLASH and stichting Tout Maastricht joined forces again to transform this multidisciplinary social design project into a sustainable and distinctive textile product & label: FabricAge. The objective of FASHIONCLASH and Tout Maastricht is to establish a unique fabric design label which emphasizes on the active participation of the elderly and traditional crafts, bringing together the arts and crafts of textile design with the tangible and intangible heritage of our culture. FabricAge facilitates communities of all ages to come together, to connect through creativity, to gain meaning and to become visible to society.

TIME TO FABRICAGE FabricAge develops high-end one-of-a-kind textile designs, based on the wishes and preferences of clients, visualized by talented designers, crafted by experts, and collectively created by the senior community. Each design and process are tailor-made, giving participants the opportunity to be part of a challenging, educational, social and creative experience, and enabling them to contribute to a unique end result. This can range from an outspoken textile art object to an eye-catching wall decor.

AS OF 1 JUNE 2017 From 1 June until 15 July 2017 the production of the first FabricAge design piece took place during more than 50 creative crafts & textile workshops at pop-up ateliers in the public library (Centre Céramique) and various community centres in Maastricht. Textile designers Jolijn Fiddelaers/IXXcreates, Suzanne Vaessen/STRIKKS, Maarten van Mulken, Ebby Port and Verena Klein worked intensively with craft experts Marjo van Knippenberg, Ingrid Reinhoud, Tiel Janssen, Brenda Prins, Ans Limpens and Miren Cals, covering the techniques of (experimental) knitting, embroidery, weaving and braiding. Together with the senior (55+) participants,  textile designs were created, which where revealed to the public during Het Parcours 2017, a large-scale cultural event on 10 September 2017 in Maastricht. www.fabric-age.nl

LET’S (AD)DRESS THE PEOPLE! is a multidisciplinary social design project based around traditional craft techniques and participation of particularly elderly. The project is developed in context of the FASHIONCLASH Festival 2016 theme Heritage and will take place at Plein 1992, Centre Céramique and Coffeelovers de ANNEX in Maastricht.

In the project the process is as important as the end result. This process of handicrafting within a team contributes to encounter, dialogue and sharing of knowledge. The project brings together the arts and crafts of fashion and textile design with the tangible and intangible heritage of our popular culture.

Designers Floor Nijdeken, Jolijn Fiddelaers of IXX Creates and Maartje Boer and Suzanne Vaessen of STRIKKS will work in teams with experienced craft buddies and elderly participnats with purpose to co-create new textile designs. The public space of Centre Céramique will temporary be transformed into a pop-up workshop where all teams will work together. In addition there will be an exhibition at Coffeelovers de ANNEX where you can see the work of the designers.  On Friday 1 July we invite you for the 'Craft & Coffee' Fashion Talk  with several designers.

The final presentation of the project will take place June 30 – July 3 during FASHIONCLASH Festival at Plein 1992, which will be temporarily transformed into a craft square. Everyone is invited to observe but also to take part with one of the teams and co-create!

LET’S (AD)DRESS THE PEOPLE! is an initiative of FASHIONCLASH in cooperation with Tout Maastricht. LET’S (AD)DRESS THE PEOPLE! is made possible thanks to generous support by Fonds voor Cultuurparticipatie, Gemeente Maastricht, Coffeelovers and Centre Céramique.

Nederlands LET’S (AD)DRESS THE PEOPLE! is een multidisciplinair sociaal design project rond traditionele handwerktechnieken en participatie van met name senioren. Het project is ontstaan naar aanleiding van FASHIONCLASH Festival 2016 thema Heritage en zal plaatsvinden op Plein 1992, Centre Céramique en Coffeelovers de ANNEX in Maastricht.

Het project stelt het proces als even belangrijk als het eindresultaat. Het proces om in groepsverband te (hand)werken aan een gezamenlijk einddoel draagt bij aan dialoog en ontmoeting evenals kennisdeling. In dit project komen mode- en textielkunst, volkscultuur, ambacht, handwerk, immateriële en materiële erfgoed samenkomen.

In team verband werken ontwerpers Floor Nijdeken, Jolijn Fiddelaers van IXX Creates en Maartje Boer en Suzanne Vaessen van STRIKKS samen met ervaren ambachtsbuddies en de deelnemende ouderen aan nieuwe textiel creaties. In de openbare ruimte van Centre Céramique wordt er een tijdelijk pop-up atelier ingericht waar in team verband en d.m.v. workshops gewerkt zal worden. Bij de Coffeelovers de ANNEX kun je terecht voor een expositie van het werk van de deelnemende ontwerpers en op vrijdag 1 juli vindt daar ook de Craft & Coffee Fashion Talk.

De uiteindelijke uitvoering van het project zal tijdens het FASHIONCLASH Festival van 30 Juni t/m 3 Juli te zien zijn op Plein 1992, dat tijdelijk wordt omgetoverd tot ambachtsplein. Iedereen is uitgenodigd om te aanschouwen maar ook om ter plaatse aan te sluiten bij een van de teams en daadwerkelijk mee te werken!

LET’S (AD)DRESS THE PEOPLE! is een initiatief van FASHIONCLASH in samenwerking met Tout Maastricht. LET’S (AD)DRESS THE PEOPLE! wordt mede mogelijk gemaakt door het Fonds voor Cultuurparticipatie, Gemeente Maastricht, Coffeelovers en Centre Céramique.
