Invitation Golden Hero Fashionshow by Agatha Mikiewicz at Areliers '89

Do you love fashion or do you have the ambition to become a designer? This is your chance! Register now at Ateliers’89 for the FASHION workshop “Hero’s in Fashion”.     The teacher of the workshop is the Polish designer Agata Mickiewicz. In the workshop “Hero’s in Mode” we will design and make the costume of our personal hero. This means something different for everybody. And every hero has his own identity. In the workshop you will learn how to translate identity into fashion by using color, fit and choice of materials. With that, we start to really create the hero. After we have immersed ourselves in pattern drawing and how we should properly represent the human proportions, we start working with fabric and sewing machine. Finally, we are going to look at how we can make the image perfect through the use of accessories and make-up.
In addition to using the sewing machine, we look for other ways to assemble the garment. In these four weeks we work together on one large collection. The workshop will be concluded with a professional show. If you have your own sewing machine or you can borrow one, take it to the studio. For the workshop, everyone is welcome, with or without experience. Everyone will be assisted and assessed at his own level. However, full commitment and involvement is expected.

You are cordially invited to participate in the fantastic workshop to build musical instruments by designer Krisztina Czika.
The Hungarian visual artist / designer Krisztina Czika is working on projects with recycled paper.
In doing so she discovered that this material gives a very good acoustics and lends itself well to making sound boxes.

She is coming to Aruba and wants to share and investigate this knowledge with you.
Her plan is to build a machine that can recycle paper and then make musical instruments with this material.

A lot of printed daily newspapers appear on Aruba and the waste of paper is a serious problem.
Do you also worry about the environment and are you interested in the creative reuse of raw materials?
Then this is the workshop for you and you can come to help Krisztina Czika building her machine to recycle paper.
Join in and design with Krisztina and together your own musical instrument out of this material.
Join us on this creative journey of discovery.
You are also more than welcome if you do not have experience in music.
Some imagination and commitment is sufficient.

When all instruments are ready we can hopefully give a concert as a festive conclusion to the work period.
