KIN will be taking over the Arnolfini for a long weekend with a multi-room extravaganza of music, conversations, games, skill-sharing and theatrical explorations, with activist meet-ups, live art and wandering provocateurs. Each of the six rooms has a full programme, and the spaces have been uniquely designed with participation and connection in mind. Please note that capacities are limited for each room, so please arrive early to your chosen sessions to guarantee entry.

De-brand your clothes in workshops across the three days hosted Antiform creator Lizzie Harrison
When it comes to fashion, we consume garments in haste with very little information on their make-up and origins, only to use them for a while and pass them on into a faceless global second hand market. The clothes are not designed with focus on how they will be worn or by who. They are not designed to be looked after, repaired, reused. There is no personalisation. As they get passed on to the second hand global markets their worth is on the perceived value of the ‘brand’ over and above the material value of the cloth and garment. When you remove the brand, the clothes take on a value of their own.
Lizzie Harrison is a designer, researcher and educator and the founder of Antiform, a forward-thinking fashion company with an irregular twist, pushing the boundaries of ethical, sustainable design by using reclaimed materials and mixing fashion forward shapes with heritage craft. She is interested in the everyday life of our clothes and how this connects us with place.
Lizzie will teach you to use basic sewing and textiles skills to de-logo your clothes and reclaim them as your own. During these informal drop in sessions, you can come and chat about their clothes, the industry, where they buy things, what they do with old garments etc etc while removing, vandalising or personalising logos on their garments. We will teach basic stitching and embroidery skills and people will leave with a tiny rebellion about their person.
No experience necessary.
