My Day at Atelier Fiberfusing

Hello there,

It’s been a while and I am already missing you all! The temp outside is +15C and I am in the middle of reorganizing my studio getting it ready for the new project.

A perfect time for a new post!

Along with my reflections on the new project, it is an aftersound of my recent meetings that my mind is being occupied with these days. One of my unforgettable impressions is definitely from the day at Atelier Fiberfusing in Amstelveen with the best hostess Dorie van Dijk whose textile art work has been my constant inspiration for quite some time now.

The beautiful landscape of the Netherlanden made an outstanding background for the development of that day!

The next absorbing thing after reading juicy blog posts of my fellow-artists is for sure visiting the artists’ studios!

The result is just delicious to the general accomplishment:

Some felting of the black sheep wool in the afternoon:

Ready, set, go!

And this is something I came up with after a while. I didn’t plan on anything particular, rather played by ear knowing that the future piece would be incorporated into a much larger piece dedicated to my long trip this past Fall.

The piece embodies scraps of silk dyed with plant dyes by Dorie van Dijk:

In my felted piece there is a house-like image luckily occurred, actually Dorie suggested it looked like a house. Which is very symbolical, I’d say.

From this point I know that in my ultimate work dedicated to my Fall trip there will be some nice green part with the road going all the way through the pastures with white swans and black sheep straight to Dorie’s hospitable house!
