International Summer School of Design

From August 16-26, Mieke Meijer and Roy Letterle are invited as tutors at MAD, International Summer School of Design in Latvia. MAD International Summer School of Design was created as an immersive intensive course where artisans, design students, professors, and experts from various fields work and live together for a determined period of time to create design pieces with purpose. In MAD’s philosophy, new values for design and craftsmanship can only emerge by developing creative works and understanding the two disciplines deeply, blurring the boundaries between the fields of design, art, crafts, and science.
MAD sessions take place each the summer in Sigulda and Krimulda Castles. At the end of the course, the pieces created are presented at an exhibition open to the public in Riga in the fall. The exhibition is complemented by an extended lecture programme.
