MILL6 WARM UP – Make a piece of clothing for yourself

, 45 Pak Tin Par Street Tsuen Wan, N.T., Hong Kong

MILL6 Foundation presents “MILL6 WARM UP – Make a piece of clothing for yourself”, a summer community engagement series to celebrate cultural heritage and textiles history of Hong Kong.
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.
Through a varied presentation, ‘MILL 6 WARM UP – Make a piece of clothing for yourself‘ aims to connect different communities and generations of the textile and garment industries to share their stories and creative know-how, thereby discovering and unearthing new possibilities for the next generation. The thoughtfully curated program has a core objective of reaching out to the wider society by building accessible learning and sharing platforms. MILL6 Foundation hopes to engage the public in meaningful ways, embodying the vision of the institution to preserve and share the valuable cultural heritage of Hong Kong for the benefit of the community at large.


MILL6 WARM UP
is realized in collaboration with numerous community and independent partners including the Boys’ & Girls’ Clubs Association of Hong Kong, i-dArt (Tung Wah Group of Hospitals), Hong Kong House of Stories, Jik Jik Team, Ying E Chi, Wheel Thing Makers and Cultural Journalism Campus among others, and will take place across Tsuen Wan, a district deeply entwined with the historic rise of the textile industry in Hong Kong.
