OUR GET TOGETHERS

SIMPLY SLOW puts crafts in the spotlight it deserves to create an inspiring awareness for authenticity by organizing small GET TOGETHERS. How? By introducing you on your lazy Sunday to our MAKERS. You will feel, smell, taste and learn all about their modest work. Our GET TOGETHERS will be accompanied by plain and simple food, slow drinks and a like-minded community. Come as you are, feel connected & leave cheerfully. There is a lot to explore to simplify your life.
