Workshop

In April I held a workshop with a classe of BTS M├ętiers de la Mode in Romans sur Isere. They learn mainly to work with leather and are educated to make shoes and handbags. I had the opportunity to enlarge there knowledge on the surface and textile design. I introduced them to silk dying, printing techniques and embroidery. The students needed to work with a concept and create a cohesive textile collection. I was very happy to see how motivated and how much fun they had during this workshop. They managed to create beautiful patterns and textile samples!

Disturbing and Beautiful

It was really long ago that I managed to go to the Gemeente Museum in the Hague. I was so happy walking around here again. At this moment there is the Anton Corbijn exhibition, very nice to see this. And I also passed by a exhibition from the Belgian artiste Berlinde de Bruyckere. This was very interesting. Disturbing, emotional, intriguing and beautiful at the same time. Her sculptures are made out of horse skin or of wax, resin, rope and worn leather and textile. Here you can find more info about Berlinde de Bruyckere.
