Due to recent events in neighbouring countries, we have to act. As a brand, it is also our responsibility to help by taking action to support this courageous country. That is why we are organizing in a few days a pop-up workshop event to raise funds for Ukraine. All funds will be donated to Giro 555. It is important for us to do this and to support all those who have to endure what is happening. Each of us can do something, and at De Steek we have chosen to organise an event that brings us together!
Come, join us Friday March 18 and show you support for Ukraine, while sewing or participating in a workshop!
The day will be structured around different workshops from 10 am to 10 pm. Teachers of different specialities will be present to help you to realise your works. Among the activities proposed, you can find a plant hanger workshop, a weaving loom and different sewing workshops!
It will be possible to follow this pop-up sewing workshop with 2/3 hours of sewing (depending on your speed). Choose to create a tote bag, t-shirt, flared legging or baby/kids pants during this session. We provide fabrics in different shades of yellow and blue to choose from. All materials are organic and natural. It is also possible to join as a complete beginner, we will teach you the basics of the sewing machine. Many fabrics in the colours of Ukraine (different shades of yellow and blue) will be at your disposal, all you have to do is let your imagination (and your talent) speak!
It is possible to just show up to see if there is a spot, but to be sure of a spot you can book in advance here:
