Members of the public had the opportunity to get acquainted with the Linen Stewards and their flax journey during Dutch Design Week 2021 – participating Linen Stewards were on-site at Atelier NL to share their experiences alongside various material outcomes of the Shared Stewardship initiative during the exhibition The Linen Project / The Linen Stewards presented by Crafts Council Nederland.

Featuring work by Henrike Gootjes, Maaike Gottschal, Hans Hutting, Heleen Klopper in collaboration with Sjaak Hullekes and Sebastiaan Kramer, Kelly Konings, Marieke van Mieghem, and Loes Schepens.
