The U_szyj P R Z E M Y T N I K A workshops are dedicated to people interested in handicraft and sewing who would like to make a unique attire for a smuggler. During the workshops, we are going to ‘dress a Nowy Port smuggler’ and sew ‘smuggler’s bags’ and exclusive ‘bag-hoods’. We will be using a sewing machine and will learn one of the basic stitches, i.e. the lockstitch. The bags and the bag-hoods will be made of cotton and the duffel bag jute. The workshops are for people who have already used a sewing machine and, because of the level of difficulty involved in the tasks, the participants should be adolescents and adults.

The MAMYWENE collective is a group of women creating and running a variety of workshops dealing with handicraft, history of art, environmental activism, nature, biology, and healthy lifestyle. They demonstrate various handicraft techniques, showing us how to create one-of-a-kind objects while simply having a great time. They like to use recycled materials, giving them a second life while educating and promoting environmental awareness. The workshops devoted to nature and biology often have a practice component helping the participants to process the knowledge they have just acquired. They accept challenges and are willing to design any kind of workshops for you.
