WHAT IS SIMPLY SLOW?
SIMPLY SLOW is a platform to highlight the importance of authentic crafts. Once every month, on your lazy Sunday, we organize a GET TOGETHER: under supervision of a MAKER you will see, hear and learn about the craft of food, raw materials or design. For instance, discover the craft of brewing beer, the art of a beekeeper in the city and the design of wool. The Sunday afternoon GET TOGETHERS are a unique experience where we will also provide refreshments. Your lazy Sunday will become a surprising thrill where you will meet new people and go home with new inspiration and knowledge. SIMPLY SLOW will show you how extraordinary the ordinary can be.
WHY SIMPLY SLOW?
Because we believe that crafts and craftsman are important. SIMPLY SLOW puts crafts in the spotlight it deserves to create a movement of awareness for authenticity. Increasing amount of people feel the urge to work with their hands, head and heart. We provide the link between them and the MAKERS and establish a community open and accessible to everyone. Do you want to be part of the movement? Follow us through social media.

WHY ARE EVENTS ON A LAZY SUNDAY?
We regard Sunday as the most relaxing day of the week; the groceries have been done and it is time to relax. Time to hop on your bike or walk towards a GET TOGETHER. SIMPLY SLOW hosts, together with MAKERS, an inspiring afternoon in which you will meet new people and go home feeling happy, inspired and relaxed.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Every month we organize a GET TOGETHER with a theme. This can vary from brewing beer, furniture design or beekeeping. The afternoon is organized in collaboration with a inspiring MAKER who will take you to their atelier or studio to show you the essence of their craft. Expect an activity with a thrill. Be open to going within your head, and getting your heart and your hands into it.
