I'm excited to announce that on June 26, The American Book Center (ABC) here in Amsterdam will be hosting The Urban Arts Festival: where design meets crafts! This will be a unique festival where design and crafts mingle, right in the centre of the city. On the day, the Spui square will be transformed into a huge outdoor atelier with designers, artisans, and crafters all making, creating, displaying & selling their work. There will also be lessons and workshops in the ABC Treehouse (Voetboogstraat 11, across the square) and right now, the ABC are inviting submissions from designers & artisans interested in participating.
It's going to be a super fun day and I will to be there too, with a little something special to share! I will give you a clue: it has something to do with my upcoming book , Amsterdam: Made by Hand - but it's not what you think. Hmm, intrigued?
If you would like more information or are interested in participating, please email the urban arts festival right here. Be sure to include a short description of your work and an image. I will write more about the festival in the time to come, but for now I just wanted to let you know this much.
June In Amsterdam - it's going to be FULL of the good stuff!
PS do you like this poster above I just made? I got a bit carried away - I only meant to create a little image to go with this post, but then I got funky with fonts. oops.
