Because we want to share what we know and discover with tomorrow’s producers and designers, we host master classes in our knitting studio. This makes our small-scale process completely transparent, from goat to garment and from sheep to sweater. Between 09:00 and 17:00 we take participants through all the steps, from animal friendly farming, via sustainable yielding and processing, to a locally produced and fairly priced piece. Of course the master classes also include working on our (industrial) hand knitting machines and watching the full documentary From Goat To Garment.
To maximize positive effects, the master classes are mainly aimed at professionals (we want to promote wool to the whole world, so all interested groups are welcome!). Students, teachers, designers, and product developers see their craft from a different angle. They learn how to make conscious decisions when working with wool.
Are you a designer, teacher, student, brand owner, product developer, department store manager, fashion editor, or any other kind of fashion professional who wants to dive deep into about the sustainable wool chain or wants to learn more about the whole production process and knitting techniques? Or are you looking for a meaningful and different kind of group activity to embark on with your colleagues?
