During the 8th International Degrowth Conference in The Hague, Linen Stewards Pascale Gatzen, Marieke van Mieghem, Ellen Rooijakkers, Carolien Evers and Henrike Gootjes facilitated two 3-hour weaving-based workshops held on location at artist-run project space Quartair.

In addition to sharing their weaving knowledge with participants during the workshops, the Linen Stewards gave insight into their experiences of the Shared Stewardship community initiative, while working on their collective garment made from the flax cultivated and harvested by the stewardship in 2020. Participants were invited to work on a small weaving of his/her/their own, with the Linen Stewards supporting them in learning how to make textiles from everyday materials.

This edition of the four-day conference – exploring a variety of approaches to degrowth, with the central theme of Caring Communities for Radical Change – took place in August 2021.
