Starting with Tufting workshops

Category : newsNo Comments 路 by Mar 13th, 2023

We have discovered a new technique: Tufting.

And this is sooo cool! You can make your own custom made design on a fluffy rug within a couple of hours. Using colored yarn, a framed window and a special ‘tufting gun’.

In addition, we have also started workshops in our studio to introduce more people to this new technique! Here are some examples from our participants.

>>>Big thanks to our interns Klarka and Gavri for the preparations and spinning all the yarn!!!

Camera Japan x Cross Comix

Category : newsNo Comments 路 by Sep 30th, 2022

‘Why not working together?’ the Camera Japan Festival and the Cross Comix Festival thought, because they are both held in the same weekend of 23/24 September, at the South of Rotterdam.

Therefore we designed a mini- 2D Living Room especially for the Camera Japan Festival visitors:)

The design is made in a cartoon style, but with some Japanese characteristics.

Big thanks to Joshua (our new intern), Maureen and Maria for helping out with painting!!!

Wooden zodiac exhibition for Rotterdam鈥檚 Chinese New Year

Category : newsNo Comments 路 by Feb 1st, 2022

Today, February 1st, is the start of the Chinese New Year. This year we celebrate the year of the Tiger. This year, the artwork does not only display the tiger, but the entire zodiac.

Instead of sawing out everything by hand, we were able to design and computer draw all 12 animals and let them lasercut. The lasercutting will give the exhibition a more professional look and feel.
The exhibition will be shown in the Markethall from February 1-13 and at the Timmerhuis from February 14-23.

Here are some making off pictures. Big thanks to Jahua from Lasergun Design, who did the awesome lasercutting 馃槂and our intern Rachel, for her it was her last week at our company馃槶
