Art medal studio

‘Penningwerkplaats’ is a studio for Dutch medallists and their trainees. Estabished in Amsterdam in 2008 by medallist Lucie Nijland, it has now become a place for admirers of art medals. The main activity in the studio is designing medal art, including practices to become acquainted with various methods of designing and ways of reproduction. The professional interaction and good guidance, also for commissions that are worked out in the studio, reinforce the field of today’s Dutch medallic art.
