There is a tradition every Wednesday in Boisbuchet…
Beside the wood workshop where the participants
Wednesday in Boisbuchet is a special day. It’s Porky’s day. Long ago, the owner of Boisbuchet decided to transform what used to be a small pig farm into a night club for the participants. Some genius had to idea to call it Porky’s. The tradition had been going on for years. On Wednesday lunch, the participants right down some themes for the party such as Kangaroo, baseball or Kazakhstan. With luck, the designers have enough inspiration not to go for some clichés like Hawaii or the 80’s. Then, a jury (Boisbuchet’s staff members) select the 5 best subjects and even merge them, always adding the magic word : sexy. For example : sexy Kazakhstani kangaroo playing baseball. On coffee break, the participants vote for the final theme. It also happens that the themes get mixed for a second time, creating crazy melting pots of words such as : sexy mermaid Kangaroo in Irak.
It’s a whole creative process to come up with a different porky’s theme every week. The results are equally creative.
The storage room is located in the same farm building that host the Porky’s parties. In this room (which is a mess) you can find anything from old Kvadrat textiles to broken IKEA lamps. The participants have from 7PM (end of the workshop) to 8PM (diner time) to design and create a costume that the will wear during the meal AND the entire evening.
