六廠夏季活動:「六廠夏日共學-造一件衣服給自己」MILL6 Summer Program: ‘MILL6 WARM UP - Make a piece of clothing for yourself’


  • Hon Do Restaurant 62 Hau Tei Square 新界 Hong Kong (map)


在那個紡織業蓬勃發展的時期,大工廠有其生產模式,山寨廠也有其靈活變通的生活技巧;而街頭巷尾的每一家,多多少少都總會懂得一些縫紉技巧。時勢使然,雖然時代不斷在變,但衣服都只是身外物。我們能做的,就是在當下的日常生活中,重新發掘那種讓我們感受到美好的可能性。

六廠希望透過從前紡織到成衣業積累下來的技術和故事,將這些資源帶到現今生活。「六廠夏日共學-造一件衣服給自己」是我們建構的第一個社區平台,透過一連串活動讓不同社群在這裏共同學習,與街坊交流,分享紡織故事,並透過創作去認識自己、了解我們的社區和實驗生活的可能性。

Back in the heyday of the textile industry, big factories ran their productions en masse while smaller cottage factories also found ways to survive by staying light on their feet; and more or less everyone in the neighborhood knew how to sew. Ages came and went, and clothes are now only considered possessions - perhaps a sign of our times. All we can do is to rediscover, through our day-to-day life, the beautiful era we once embraced.

With the plethora of techniques and stories inherited from our textile and garment industries, MILL6 hopes to channel such resources to the life we lead today. ‘MILL6 WARM UP – Make a piece of clothing for yourself’ is our first community platform which offers a series of programs for different groups to learn together,share stories of textile and garment, and the opportunity to create - as a way of discovering oneself and gaining insights into our community and experimental ways of living.

Held in collaboration by MILL6 and The Boys‘ & Girls’ Clubs Association of Hong Kong, It’s Show Time is a program that encourages participants to explore their interests via cultural discovery, fashion design, makeup art and image design. 70 young students would take part in one of two workshops on visual arts and oral history, before showcasing their final works at our community stall “The Upcycling Bird”.

2. 社區實驗室
日期-2016.08.20-21
時間-1:00- 6:00pm
地點- 荃灣鱟地坊休憩處 

説起紡織,我們可能很快便會想到自己身上穿着的衫褲鞋襪,卻甚少想起紡織周邊的東西或聯想到紡織在生活上的可能性。「社區實驗室」邀請了一群升級再造的街坊組織和車衣姐姐:織織團、容姐和May姐,於六月到八月期間,在荃灣街頭舉行一系列紡織實驗計劃,透過舊物改裝探討生活的可能性。

2. Community Lab
Date - 2016.08.20- 21
Time - 1:00pm- 6:00pm
Venue - Hau Tei Square Sitting-out Area, Tsuen Wan

We often identify textiles with the clothes and socks and shoes we wear, but seldom beyond that – like things related to textiles, or how textiles can shape our lives. From June to August, the Community Lab invites Jik Jik Team, a neighborhood upcycling group, and seamstresses Aunt Yung and Aunt May to host a string of textile experimental initiatives at the streets of Tsuen Wan to explore possibilities in life through upcycling.

4. 六廠紡織茶會
日期-2016.08.20
時間-3:00pm - 5:00pm
地點-漢都餐廳(荃灣鱟地坊62號)

那個紡織業蓬勃的時代,街頭巷尾的每家每都總會懂得一些縫紉的技巧,人們常常在深水埗、荃灣、西環等地方購買所需的紡織材料。時至今日,雖然紡織業在香港已逐漸式微,可是它除了為香港經濟發展付出重要的一環之外,還盛載着不少香港人的共同回憶。「六廠紡織茶會」集合了一班對紡織文化有認識的人士作為文化導賞員,透過口述歷史分享,帶領公眾回顧昔日紡織業蓬勃的年代。

活動將以廣東話進行。座位有限,敬請於八月十七日前電郵留座。

4. MILL6 Textile Tea Gathering
Date - 2016.08.20
Time - 3:00pm - 5:00pm
Venue- Hon Do Restaurant (62 Hau Tei Square, Tsuen Wan)

In the heyday of the textile industry, sewing was more or less a household skill everyone had, and people often bought materials they needed from places like Sham Shui Po, Tsuen Wan and Sai Wan. The trade is now on the wane in Hong Kong but apart from its economic contributions to the city, textiles represent an archive of collective memories for many of us. The MILL6 Textile Tea Gathering invited a group of textile know-hows to become cultural ambassadors, where they will revisit the industry’s glorious days with visitors by oral history sharing.

Event will be conducted in Cantonese. 
Seats are limited, RSVP by 17 August via email.

5. 紙樣師傅示範
日期及時間-
2016.08.20 1:00pm - 2:00pm
2016.08.21  1:00pm - 2:00pm & 4:00pm - 5:00pm

地點-漢都餐廳(荃灣鱟地坊62號)

一件衣服由生物料到穿在身上,當中涉及很多步驟,而每一個步驟都同樣重要,缺一不可。然而,人們往往忽視了畫紙樣的師傅,他們是如何在一塊平面的布料上規劃出圖案,讓不同崗位的車衣工人拼湊成一件立體的衣服?這次我們邀請了兩位不同年代的紙樣師傅,於「六廠夏日共學」活動與街坊分享畫紙樣的技巧及作即場示範,從中令大家對他們的工作有更多的認識。    

5. Master Demonstration - Pattern Making
Date & Time

2016.08.20 - 1:00pm - 2:00pm
2016.08.21 - 1:00pm - 2:00pm, 4:00pm - 5:00pm
Venue - Hon Do Restaurant (62 Hau Tei Square, Tsuen Wan)

It takes a journey of many steps for raw materials to be transformed into a piece of garment, and each step is equally important and indispensable. People often ignore the role of a pattern-maker, who flat drafts the shapes of garment pieces before sewing workers combine to bring the clothing to life. We invited 2 pattern-makers from different eras to feature in the MILL6 WARM UP event where they will share and demonstrate their first-hand techniques, so residents can gain insights into their professionals.


6. 紡織故事 口述歷史分享 
日期-2016.08.20-21
時間-2:00pm - 3:00pm & 5:00pm - 6:00pm
地點-漢都餐廳(荃灣鱟地坊62號)

不少人身邊都會有些長輩、親人或朋友曾從事與紡織和成衣有關的行業,不時也聽聞香港輝煌一時的紡織製衣業大大小小的威水史。今次我們邀請不同部門、工種的師傅來分享當年的生活經歷,和當年工廠發生的愛情故事。
