Workshop Weekend

Two workshops this weekend. The first one was for me, called "Blozende Stoffen" in the Stedelijk Museum 's-Hertogenbosch, inspired on the Scholten & Baijens exhibition over there (worth a visit if you are around! My favorite was the paper porcelain).
We made a fabric screenprint and an artwork with wood and yarn.

And the second workshop was for our eldest son in the Verkadefabriek during a festival about food and taste. Making a painting with fruits and vegetables.

A new order for the shop of the Textielmuseum to make fabric buttons, bobby pins, rings and magnets. And next to the "normal" fabric covered ones, I experimented a little with vintage embroidered tabelcloths and handkerchiefs. And they liked these a lot, a very good excuse for me to go searching for more embroidered fabrics in second hand shops again.

While we were enjoying some lovely days in Paris, you all left nice comments on this blog, hoping to win a metre of one of the new ByGraziela fabrics. 99 comments via this blog and 3 via Facebook, makes 102 comments in total (wow! I am impressed!). And the bad thing for 101 persons is that there is only one winner.... And it is: Marjolein! Congratulations!!
