Book Signing & "Leather" Tasting with Katja Gruijters

  • Brooklyn Fashion + Design Accelerator 630 Flushing Ave, 7th Floor Brooklyn, NY 11206 United States

From the Brooklyn Fashion + Design Accelerator

Join us for a truly one of a kind event in collaboration with the Pratt Institute and Brooklyn Fashion + Design Accelerator with food designer Katja Gruijters and Judith van den Boom, Department Head at Product Design at ArtEZ University of the Arts, Arnhem, in the Netherlands. This lecture is generously being sponsored by Pratt Institute and the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce.

Katja’s lecture will focus on the idea of obesity across industries, looking at how we as consumers have become “overweight” from the over-consumption of fashion, food and information. We’ll start out with a “Welcome Chrysanthemum Tea” accompanied by chocolate lace tiles made by Katja, followed by a book signing of Food Design, “leather tastings” and a takeaway recipe card with dried chrysanthemum tea to make at home.
