Laura Klauss - Dutch engineer of the year and Jouke Loff from Dickson fabrics in da house

After a short absence of the docents last week the students used the time to develop their concepts without any disturbances. So today we had a lot of things to talk about. Casper van der Meer was replaced today by his colleague Laura Klauss from the Better Future Factory  while Casper is busy for a research project on the other side of the world.

Laura was recently appointed engineer of the year and her set of skills suited our course perfectly, Such an honor to have her in the studio. So it was no wonder that we spent an extra long day in the studio and discussed all the concepts.

Next to that Jouke Loff from Dickson Constant  the world leader for technical fabrics and especially sunshadiny fabrics joined the course also and made a short presentation about fabrics in general and spent also some time in the studio to help our students to find the right material for their projects. Jouke also offered samples for the project, so we are able to work with the real stuff.

Here a few pictures of the busy day in the studio. Happy faces are always a good sign ...
