Bas Kosters hosts masterclasses quilting and embroidery in collaboration with Crafts Council Nederland and the Zuiderzeemuseum.
During these days you get to know the work of Bas and the wonderful world around it. Bas tells you about his way of working, his fascinations and his enormous love for collecting. Besides fashion, he also designs masks and tapestries. These humorous, often sexual, wall decorations are visual works. During the masterclass you start working on your own tapestry.

Bas is this month Dutch Master at Pakhuis de Zwijger. In the monthly series Dutch Masters, Pakhuis de Zwijger invites designers, creative makers and storytellers of Dutch descent to tell about their career, sources of inspiration, realized and future projects and the highs and lows of their craft. Bas will be questioned about his ambitions and motivations and asked to share his wisdom. Every time a Dutch Master brings along a fresh and promising Dutch Talent. This evening, Bas Kosters and MAISON the FAUX will meet on stage.

Bas Kosters shows how chintz inspired him and led him to new interpretations of craft. Through a cross-cultural exchange of knowledge, the Textiel Factorij brought together Dutch artists and designers with Indian craftsmen. A number of these artists and designers, including Bas Kosters, present the result of this collaboration in this exhibition about craft and costume.

Wow, great news, we have a new location in the heart of Amsterdam. In Amsterdam Central station to be exact. A little dream has come true. Bas is an indisputable and indelible part of Amsterdam’s culture, and therefore the wonderful world of the Bas Kosters Studio will now get a little sibling in the heart of Amsterdam. In Lil’ Amsterdam we will open the Lil’ Bas Kosters Studio. Showing everything that the Bas Kosters Studio holds, but on a more modest scale. The shop will serve as a gallery, workplace, mini museum, store and little event space in the coming months.

Three looks from my Permanent State of Confusion collection are part of the exhibition ‘The World is Your Dressing Up Box’. 
Exploring costume design, fashion design, millinery, jewellery and shoes, the exhibition transformed the gallery into a space where extravagant opulence is celebrated. The exhibition provides an interplay between the pieces that one can only stand back and admire and the ones that you can try on.

My glitter clown costume from the collection Clowns Are People Too AW14 is part of the exhibition ‘REFLECTION by Jean-Paul Lespagnard’. At the Museum of Costume and lace you can discover the effects that contemporary art pieces, popular culture objects and stylists’ pieces from the museum’s collections had on the creator’s work. It’s a different look at fashion and its inspiration. Immerse yourself in the creative mind of Jean-Paul Lespagnard.

From now on, my new work of art 'De Kapitalist' is displayed in Museum Arnhem. Artistic transformation is important in many of my projects. As an artist, I always place myself in the middle of my work and art, as narrative object, as a carrier, as a starting point or end product.

On Sunday, April 30th at 3 P.M. my exhibition "Come along and dream with me" will open at the Sis Josip gallery in The Hague. The exhibition gives an intimate picture of my thoughts. Till June 18th, the cozy gallery on the Hoogstraat 9 will be filled with original Bas Kosters drawings, glass objects, small tapestries and paintings. The exhibition embodies the pleasure I have in creating, whether it's with textiles, glass or pen and paper. The title expresses the hope to keep on dreaming, even in these harsh times.
