ABOUT CLAUDY JONGSTRA
Studio Claudy Jongstra and See All This invite you to a special masterclass at a unique location in Amsterdam: the building where the famous “staalmeesters” once inspected the woollen fabrics.
Since 2001, Claudy Jongstra and Claudia Busson have maintained a special place in Friesland, where they tend to a herd of rare Drentse Heath sheep and cultivate a botanical garden with unique plants that provide natural pigments. They also collaborate with biodynamic farmers in the Netherlands, Germany, and Spain. This location is where monumental wool artworks are created in vibrant colors, using materials and resources from the garden. Here, knowledge about centuries-old techniques and recipes, which are increasingly disappearing, is also passed on.
In a region dominated by large-scale agriculture and intensive land exploitation, Studio Claudy Jongstra established LOADS in September 2022: a self-sustaining hub of creativity focused on continuous development in new sustainable approaches, aimed at securing livelihoods for future generations in rural and urban communities.
