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'

有權利去想像,是一件美好的事情。雖然從前已經離我們很遠,可是美好的價值觀和概念卻不會因時間流逝而消失。

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的技巧。衣服都只是身外物,回看那段紡織業蓬勃的時期,美好的不只是衣物本身,而是其充滿着可能性的年代。時勢使然,雖然時代不斷在變,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。

六廠希望透過從前在紡織到時裝業界積累下來的技術和故事,將這些資源帶到現今的生活。六廠夏日共學-造一件衣服給自己,將於八月二十至二十一日舉行。這是我們建構的第一個社區平台,透過青年製造、《社區實驗室》、草根2016 – 編織電影》、《六廠紡織茶會》、《紙樣師傅示範》、《紡織故事-口述歷史分享》、埋嚟睇埋嚟講極速傳說:衣車速度賽等一連串活動,讓不同的人在這裏共同學習,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。

The power of recollection is a beautiful privilege. The past might appear distant, but beautiful values and ideas would not fade with time.

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; more or less everyone in the neighborhood knew how to sew. Clothes are merely possessions, so the beauty of the good old days came not just from clothes themselves, but that it was an era with boundless possibilities.

Ages came and went, but what we can do - perhaps a sign of our times - is to rediscover, through our day-to-day life, the beautiful era we once embraced.

Our textile and fashion industries have bred a legacy of techniques and stories, and 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, to be held on 20-21 August, which offers programs like It’s Show TimeCommunity Lab, Grassroots Filmmaking Project 2016MILL6 Textile Tea GatheringMaster Demonstration: Pattern Making, Textile Stories- Oral History Sharing, Kaifong Tales and The Unstoppable Legend of Sewing Machines. They enable different groups to learn together, communicate with kaifong, 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.
