Join Merel Karhof and SMP this winter for a making workshop packed full of color, creativity and culture. After just twenty minutes, take away your very own 'krijtjes' (unique wax crayons made in the Dutch tradition) to use yourself or give as a gift.
Led by Dutch designer Merel Karhof, this special workshop incorporates color pigments from Verfmolen 'de Kat' (a pigment windmill in The Netherlands) and fragrant melting beeswax. Each color has it's own story: the 'tile red' is made from recycled, ground-up roof tiles from Holland; and the 'blue gold' pigment refers to the historically important blues used in trade and Delftware. Learn about each pigment whilst participating in its magical transformation from dust to tool.
The Krijtjes (Little Crayons) Workshop is held in The Old Shoreditch Station on Thursday the 11th of December 2014 from 18:00 till 21:00 and is part of a collaboration between JaguarShoes Collective and The Saturday Market Project that sees SMP popping up at this location for the whole of December 2014. Book your tickets here.
The workshop is only £5 and we suggest signing up in advance to book your place.
This workshop is run by designer Merel Karhof. Merel was born in the Netherlands and now lives and works in London, UK. Her research-driven, process-led working method drives her to develop her own tools and products, functioning as 'three-dimensional sketchbooks' to visualize her studies. She has presented her work in exhibitions in London, Milan, Venice and Amsterdam.
