Madam TricoMadam Trico Contact: Petra Janssens
Madam Trico, alias Petra Janssens, is a former primary school teacher addicted to handicrafts.
My first great love was knitting. I’ve been knitting since I was 6, and until about 5 years ago that was my greatest passion. Then I found my pleasure in crocheting and Tunisian crochet and it became very difficult to divide my time between these 3 craft techniques. And now, a little over a year ago, a friend convinced me to learn to sew too. I immediately left and I sewed together a lot of clothes and handbags that year to tell you 🙂
When I saw the opportunity to open the store in Steenokkerzeel at the end of December, I didn’t hesitate for long. It was with a heavy heart that I said goodbye to 20 fantastic students, but I felt it was time for something new.
I can’t wait to share my passion for handicrafts with the world!

Robb ZillaRobb Zilla
- Robb.Zilla is een Antwerpse juweelontwerper die opvalt door zijn flexibele creativiteit. In eigen atelier ontwerpt hij zijn juwelencollectie maar past hij ook zijn modellen aan naar jouw voorkeur. Hij geeft er ook diverse workshops, waar hij je tijdens enkele lessen inwijdt in de ‘verloren-was’-techniek.
In de workshop Droomjuwelen word je aan de hand van een oefenmodel ingewijd in de kunst van het ontwerpen met de ‘verloren was-techniek’. Dezelfde techniek wordt ook in de workshop voor Trouwers aangeleerd aan koppeltjes die zó voor elkaar een originele en individuele ring creëren. Op een avondje maak je de ring van je partner naar eigen ontwerp en onder de deskundige begeleiding van Robb.Zilla.
Robb.Zilla is gespecialiseerd in de verwerking van oud-goud.
Laat je nieuwe juwelen maken uit het oude goud dat in je schuifje ligt en afhankelijk van het ingeleverde gewicht en karaatgehalte, halveer je misschien wel de prijs van je nieuwe aanwinst. De waarde van jouw goud wordt bepaald volgens de dagkoers van het oud-goud.
Daar Robb.Zilla oog heeft voor het sentimentele aspect van je oude goud krijg je de garantie dat jouw eigen goud opnieuw wordt verwerkt.
Gouden tip voor trouwers:
laat je ringen sponsoren door een erfstuk uit de familie

Luca school of ArtsLuca school of ArtsAcademic Bachelor and Master in Visual Arts
Do you have a fascination for textiles, a drive to create and do you want to master the visual language of textiles? Then the Textile Design specialization offers you a challenging research environment that explores the fascinating versatility of this medium. Textiles have a long history and come in many forms.
We communicate who we are in the way we dress and in the design of our living environment. Culture, time and social processes play a role in this, so that textiles function as a carrier of cultural values, ideas and meanings.
In the textile workshop you work with this fascinating versatility. New avenues and the changing role of the designer are explored, whereby the design process is not only about functionality but also about historical awareness, sustainability, emotions and topicality.
In this search for experiment, innovation and your own language, the artistic process is always central.
