Product Design has developed a profound base of high-quality craftsmanship throughout the BA program, where students build their vision on design through research and making. From 2015 the department has set course towards the creation of new materials on the basis of ingredients and resources. This resulted in workshops on bio-design and classes on creating new materials. 3rd-year students have investigated new approaches towards textiles in workshops with tutor Klaartje Martens and guest tutor Joris Suk from Maison De FAUX. By working on experimental methods and material (de)constructions for several weeks, students studied new qualities and applications of textiles.
