Crafts Council Nederland presents a high-end exhibition: The Linen Project . This production contains a journey through Dutch agriculture showing the course from flax till linen and its exceptional versatile use. Its mysteries hidden in almost forgotten knowledge, revolts back in inevitable ways. HOW starts with the delicate blue flower and will introduce you to ancient techniques among which are rippling, winnowing, retting, scutching and heckling combs. WOW shows an experimental search by designers and artisans encountering tradition and new perspectives. Emphasising flax, linen and linseed oil’s potential relevance. Coming together in a highly aesthetic, but foremost essential group exhibition.
