Craft the Leather, 2013.

Tuscan VEG TAN Leather have organised several editions of an international workshop dedicated to exploration and experimentation. International academies from the UK, the US, Korea, France, Japan and the Netherlands joined in this collaboration. Craft The Leather is an invitation-only training workshop with a group of talented young designers from the most prestigious and innovative international design institutes. Students, designers and makers come together in the Tuscan Leather District to learn about local working methods, the material properties of Vegetable-tanned leather (veg-tan or oak-tanned) and try new things with this material. The students continue their projects back at the department. In the past four years, the following students have been selected for this workshop: Renee Verhoeven, Mark Sturkenboom, Anne Vaandrager, Tessa Groenewoud and Mahsa Kordbacheh
