Weeflab in Amsterdam Noord
profiles ‘weaving’ as a combination of skills, networking and research.

It explores contemporary weaving in a long term project, focussing on
making and critical reflection, i.e. the weaver as the protagonist of our times.

Weeflab is based on:
A sustainable agenda and manual skills:
weaving on hand- and computer-controlled looms,
serial and industrial work, printmaking with silkscreen,
material sensitivity and dexterity.


Weeflab is informed by a hybrid background of art and science:
spatial weaving and anatomy, layered prints and 3D growth,
textiles and tissue, grids and microscope.
