Museums connect craftspeople, vocational education students and artists/designers within the Crafts Lab to promote cross links.
The Lab aims to bring the different links in the production process together so they can develop innovative ideas in collaboration. This takes place through the exchange of knowledge during a concentrated working period. The Crafts Lab is a hybrid method between a workshop and a thinktank. The Labs consist out of 8 to 12 weekly meetings organised and facilitated by museums.
