Atelier week was a moment to make, play, experiment and reflect. From a digital museum visit, to making prints, posters and even our own fabrics in Friesland. This week got us out of our heads and into working with our hands.

Taking a step back and working with our hands helped us come up with new creative ideas

Taking a break from our hectic schedule in Amsterdam, we visited the studio of Claudy Jongstra in Friesland where we experimented with different wool and colour techniques.

By cooking vegetables such as onion, a dye can be created in different colours. This dying method is more sustainable than regular dying methods, as it is done without any additional chemical.

Collaborating with the other departments connected our and opinions. It helped us develop our train of thought further and take the next step. - Print media

Letting go of the rational and following the emotional, helped us rediscover our creative sides. - Merchandise manager
