Farm of the World, Cor Unum, Studio Claudy Jongstra, and EE Labels will present their collaboration focused on design and material in the exhibition Natural Forces. This presentation shows us the concrete impact design can have on a social and sustainable society. It touches upon the power and wealth of nature and the way in which these organisations relate to it. Furthermore they will provide an insight into their work practices and they show how the two new product lines CLAY Reglaze and YARNS Relate have come about.
Cor Unum developed an especially designed small ceramics factory to show their practice. Studio Claudy Jongstra organizes a social bread baking project in which the visitor has the opportunity to bake their own bread and contribute to BREAD Reveal: a collection of cultural and culinary stories about the meaning of bread. EE Labels presents beautiful woven labels made from organic cotton and recycled PET yarns. And Farm of the World shows what screen printing is in their very own mobile screen printing station.
Together the four collaboration partners developed two new product lines: CLAY Reglaze and YARNS Relate. This beautiful ceramics line and napkins series are especially developed for Leeuwarden European Cultural Capital 2018. The revenu of these products will go to Treasures of Nature: our special programme for unprivileged youth. This makes CLAY and YARNS an original, as well as a social and sustainable project.
