KADK The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts

As part of an effort in making fish skin leather more relevant to contemporary sustainable fashion, a group of international fashion students - including Frederikke Elling from KADK - were fortunate enough to take part in the Nordic Fish Skin Leather Craft workshop at the Icelandic Textile Centre with Atlantic Leather in Blönduós, North Iceland. The centre is a textile and fibre arts residency. The workshop was organized by Elisa Palomino from Central Saint Martins and Katrin Maria Karadottir from Iceland University of the Arts.
