From December 1 to 18, Maker.Street offers the opportunity to see the work of this year’s 32 Urban Crafters via the Vitrinexpo in the shop windows of the Lakensestraat/rue de Laeken, the Brussels artisan’s street.

What does Urban Crafts do? 

Urban Crafts is an innovative platform for young creatives that has successfully evolved within an interactive network of 180 'crafters'. The concept was created five years ago by Trendwolves. Urban Crafts recruits creative young ladies and gentlemen who practice their craft in a contemporary manner and with passion. They are treated to workshops, networking events and provided with all kinds of support to improve their skills and to showcase their creations in photos and videos. 

What does Maker.Street have to offer? 

From December 1 to 18, this year's selection of 32 young crafters from all over Belgium will showcase their skills and creations under the banner of Maker.Street. You can find them in the Vitrinexpo in the shop windows of the Lakensestraat/rue de Laeken, the Brussels artisan’s street. Amongst the lucky ones, you'll find Joke Van den Hof's animated videos, furniture designed by Antwerp's Jonas Van Put, bamboo bycicles created by Geppetto, and even Delphine Courier's CatCube, a cosy playing and sleeping hub for cats. 

Are you a crafter yourself? 

Two years ago, visual and lighting artist Alexander Stagier was proclaimed to be the most promising crafter of his generation. Alexander also won the Bill Award for most promising designer in 2015. Are you a young creative yourself and do feel like you deserve to become part of the Urban Crafts family? Do not hesitate and apply here to become part of the community.
