Calligraphy, embroidery, basket weaving, and kite making

Under the guidance of leading maker-designers and craft experts, 36 young makers have developed their creative talents during the Crafts Academy. This exhibition not only marks the conclusion of the first edition but also the beginning of a new generation of makers who build upon the legacy of traditional crafts and blend them with contemporary innovation.

Crafts Academy is the talent program by Crafts Council Nederland that offers young people the unique opportunity to learn directly from professionals in the rich environment of museums. The makers have delved into four techniques: calligraphy and decorative painting, embroidery, basket weaving, and kite making.

Crafts are deeply rooted in every culture worldwide. They connect us to our shared origins through objects, stories, and traditions. Therefore, Crafts Academy took place at the Wereldmuseum Rotterdam, Wereldmuseum Leiden and Wereldmuseum Berg en Dal.
