Workshop @Mieke Recour


A refreshing early morning walk before the start of a beautiful day at the seashore in De Haan. Heading for the workshop 'Hot Textiles' @ Mieke Recour.


 Some of Mieke's pretty silk, ceramic and felt creations in her workshoproom.




Coloring the bondaweb and making a collage with different materials on a frame and an old wooden box.


 Coloring of a light sheet of polyetheen with acrylic paint.


 Making fabric beads with the heat gun.




 A ring made out of a handcolored thick sheet of polyetheen.



  And some brooches in a combination of thick and thin sheets of polyetheen and fabric.




Lots and lots of try-outs to get some good ones,
 as it looks a lot simpler then it is. 
But no worries, you can buy the pretty rings that Mieke makes
 in her new etsy shop !
For workhops with felt, silk, crochet : one adress to recommend,
find out all about it on Mieke Recour's website.

How interesting -- i am curious to know how these materials reacted to create the natural-looking shapes.
