Textile workshop

A workshop was followed at the studio of lovely Mieke Recour.  This time we where instructed how to play with Evolon, Vliesofix and Tyvek.  I applied two techniques in my work.
1/ painting the Evolon, Vliesofix and Tyvek - which after ironing resulted in bright colors on one side of the necklace.
2/ transferring a photo onto silk and stick this with Vliesofix onto the other side of the necklace. 

This resulted in an ultra light, personalised and soft necklace.

Winterwoollies: crochet versus knitwork


Exercising my 'in the round knitting' the continental way.
Left one is crocheted, right one knitted, but both with the same yarn!



Crocheted with thick 'degradé' yarn.
