Sweat Shop

 In > shopping

Martena Duss and Sissi Holleis have just opened this original new neighbourhood project, a ‘café couture’ where sewers can make their projects come alive. The cosy atelier space is available to anyone who wants to rent one of the ten Singer workstations for just 6€ per hour, or for a whole day (25€) in a cyber-cafe style set-up. The Sweat Shop also offers daily workshops taught by professionals in the industry and held in small groups of 5 to 10 (20€-80€); the program is here. We recommend Sat afternoon’s (2-6pm) Custom Atelier: ‘Where excentric fashion meets extreme customizing!’, by Vava Dudu. Coffee and home-made cake (from neighbour Bob’s Juice Bar) will set you back just 5€. The Sweat Shop is also open to anyone who wants to just repair and recycle old clothing, but doesn’t have the luxury of a sewing machine of their own. Their mantra: ‘Less buying – more trying !’ (Btw, there’s a special opening party next week Tue 16 March  from 4pm with drinks, cake, and music by The Peter Von Poehl & Marie Modiano Songbook and Bent Van Looy.)
