workshop / Book binding &
Stencil printing, co: Manuela Hoek
Together with Manuela Hoeck, at this time student of social work, we held two workshops at the Don Bosco Club in Cologne. The first one was a book binding workshop where children could make their own Taschenbuch. In the second workshop children designed their own prints for T-shirts. We helped the children to produce stencils and to print their motifs onto the T-shirts. Unfortunately, there was simply no time to think of taking pictures.
But here is one of the stories I enjoy remembering: Christian, one of the children who took part in the book binding workshop was very convinced that he could NOT sew the layers of paper together. Still, he stayed on until he had finished his work. As I used to live close to the club, from time to time we met on the street: the first thing he always
(proudly) mentioned was that he still has the book!
