Shanti Sue Margaretha Versnel
In 2016 I graduated from the study Spacial Design at Cibap in Zwolle. I continued my education at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam where I graduated Cum Laude in 2021 from the study Product Design in the Social Practice.
During these last few years, I have started to create my own view on the world of design and discovered my fields of interest. Crafts is one of these interests and goes hand in hand with craftsman. I enjoy meeting experts, see production process in real life and understand the stories behind materials and the people who work with them.
From there I work to communicate this story to a broader audience, sending the message that objects, materials and raw resources, don’t just appear. There are great communities behind it with skilled hands and years of knowledge.
