In this CREATIVE UPCYCLING WORKSHOP you will craft a very unique necklace: A perfect souvenir from Amsterdam, because the necklace is going to be made out of local bike tubes. And also fun, the workshop will take place on a beautiful location: My houseboat in the old centre of Amsterdam. We will start with coffee, tea, or juice and some baked goods to get to know each other and to make you feel at home on the water. I will show you around and tell you everything you want to know about houseboat life. A truly unique experience on it's own already. But that's only the beginning... After this we will start making your necklace by using old (cleaned) inner tubes from a local bicycle repair shop. While exploring the world of bike tube crafting you will make your very own exceptional necklace. And if there's time enough also earrings, a cardholder or a key chain can be made. It's a nice and easy crafting process and we'll do it all by hand, from start to finish. Step by step, I'll guide you through the stages of creating this. At the end of the workshop, you’ll leave feeling accomplished, having created your own handcrafted piece of Amsterdam to take back home.
I'm a professional artist with a wide range of skills. I am a former photographer and documentary filmmaker, now working as an upcycle artist for a few years. I truly love to make people aware of looking at ordinary things in another way. This is what I've always been doing as an artist. Opening people's eyes is a beautiful thing, so I will passionately share this way of looking at the world with you, starting with a bike tube on a houseboat. Nothing is what it seems. Is it a bike tube? No, it's a necklace.

My houseboat is located on a beautiful historic canal in the famous and hippest neighborhood of the city centre (Jordaan area). It's a picturesque and quiet piece of town, with a romantic canal view next to a historic drawbridge. While crafting your souvenir you can enjoy the view alongside the canal with birds and boats passing by, and feel how life is on the water. And a funny thing, my houseboat used to be a bike repair shop many years ago.
