Cardboarders workshop at Art and Design Deltion Zwolle

213-360x239

I (Mathijs) was asked to do a workshop at the (international) school for Art and Design in Zwolle. I decided to make it an intense two days of cardboard costume-making.

Cardboard Forests

IMG_43631-360x239

A while ago we made this cardboard forest. We made it for the children visiting the CODA museum (in Apeldoorn).

The forest was made by Mathijs Stegink, Jeroen Diepenmaat and Tanja Koning. We wanted to make a visualization of the phrase “not see the wood for the trees” … Continue reading

What we like about festivals is not to just sit around and consume. We want to join in! A big festival like Lowlands is like a village, you can eat, drink, dance and consume whatever you like. But once in a while you get ideas on festivals, and you want to produce them immediately.
