17 January, 2016
Celebrate the new year at the Kunsthal. Don’t let that cold January weather get to you this year! Come to the Kunsthal and have your photograph taken in The Sweater of 2016 (De Trui van 2016) on Greenchoice Warm Sweater Day (Greenchoice Warme Truiendag). Better still, come along and knit with us! On 17 January, you can learn all the necessary tips and tricks during workshops, talks and the Knittery Noon. And there’s more still: ‘Haring Happen’ with Keith Haring and Schmidt Zeevis, Vodka&Blinis and Soviet Design, and Knitted Fashion from Chanel to Westwood.

Have your picture taken in The Sweater of 2016 (wear one you have knitted yourself or borrow one of ours). Two fashion photographers and a make-up artist will be there to make sure it’s a great picture.
