Thriving on Mull #3: Baking bread with Rutger Emmelkamp
While Erik and Miek are hiking, Sophie joins Rutger at his morning routine of baking bread. It took him more than a year to get it right: to build a productive relation with the sourdough culture that helps him bake the bread. As a bonus Rutgers shows the ‘barn in a barn’ that he has been building for the past two years. We give you two words: pig manure and resilience.
Rutger Emmelkamp is an artist, teacher and program maker. He connects art, historical and deep ecology theory with film, literature, theater and crafts. In parallel, Rutger has been teaching in various art disciplines for more than ten years and was appointed head of the Jewellery Department at the Rietveld Academie Amsterdam in 2013 – a position he resigned from to dedicate his artistic practice and making skills to Knockvologan in 2017.
We were inspired and overwhelmed by Mull and everything the island contains and shared with us. This is one of 13 talks. We edited it like ‘a string of pearls’. It works best to jump from one pearl to the next, starting at the beginning… Enjoy!
