2609WorkPlace is a platform that provides creatives an opportunity to use industrial machines for working with leather.

To support students, graduates and professionals the platform offers all the machines from 10:00 AM until 10:00 PM every day of the week.

My name is Edgar Caufijn.

I followed a three year shoemaking course at the Dutch HealthTech Academy in Utrecht. My  background is in making shoes but tailors, bag-makers or shoemakers are all wellcome.

 During the course the need arose for a place to spend more my shoes.
I figured out I was not the only one in need of a workplace.

My aim is to support individuals by offering them the opportunity to use my workplace at an affordable price in this expensive city.
