We went to Inside Design-fair in Amsterdam. It was great to see young designers works, but also different design manufacturers new collections. The main fair was in the mooi (=beautiful) Lloyd Hotel. In one of the rooms they were demonstrating how to repair old Thonet furniture. I had a chance to give it a try! Once you know how to do it, it's quite simple, but you need to focus. I'm planning to go to learn how to do this weaving,since the craftsman himself promised to teach me at his workshop! I think it's a great opportunity to learn traditional craftmanship, which I'm highly interested in.
