Roos Langendorff is an artist from the Netherlands. After studying theater design on the Rietveld Academy (School of Arts in Amsterdam) she discovered, years later, the joy of working with clay. Some years she experimented and discovered the endless possibilities of this versatile material. In 2017 she graduated at The Dutch school of Ceramic techniques in Gouda. From then on she more and more develops her own interests and visual identity.

Roos will also be giving a talk and presentation on Wednesday 7th November at 7pm at the ASP centre. All welcome.
