From 17 until 21 August you will stay in Wilhelminaoord and become immersed in the world of crafts. Crafts Council Nederland is organizing this summer Crafts Campus for design and fashion students, professionals, and anyone who wants to learn more about a specialized technique at a high level. In this short, intensive course you will learn a lot about traditional techniques and new applications. The innovative character of the crafts is very good to use in new designs for fashion collections or design products.
Not only Dutch techniques are treated. An excursion is also made to China and Japan, and manual techniques are examined that have had a great deal of influence in the Netherlands.
Hat designer Marleen Mangnus will give a course on Hat Making techniques during the Crafts Campus, in which nature will be used as a source of inspiration.
