AfterSeminar Thoughts или Мы Сделали Это!

Two days in a row showers are pouring, the wind is so strong… Only a moment ago it was sunny and heavenly hot! Two days ago I was spending half a day watering my garden. Today streets are almost flooded… This weather change definitely calls for some summing-up of the feathers in the cap of the season. Or in my case, the leaves on my scarf!

Два дня кряду дождь. Точнее ливень. Только что приходилось полдня поливать сад, а теперь на улицах потоп. Что ж, время полистать архив и подвести сезонные итоги.

Contact dyeing

Let me tell you that my impromptu plan for gathering like-minded pips to enjoy textile practices in the open air using everything that the Nature provides for dyers, turned into a most captivating undertaking. No doubt, it was a challenge to turn the idealistic idea into reality. But when the time came I felt rewarded in spades. First of all, beautiful and knowledgeable people meeting and communicating whom was a treat. And of course, the place that I am constantly in love with!

Мой в высшей мере беззаботный план собрать однодумцев-текстильщиков, в реальности обернулся наиболее запоминающимся событием красильной практики сезона. Прекрасные знающие единомышленники и замечательное место встречи – мои организационные старания оказались щедро вознаграждены. Текстильные встречи в Крыму состоялись!


Mystical and enigmatic are the ancient walls…

тайной дышат древние стены


Always changeable, telling its immortal story of centuries – the Euxine Sea!

переменчивый и легендарный Понт Эвксинский


We tried to listen to the Euxine stories with great attention; we followed the path of the ancient predecessor scrupulously gaining advantage of naturally provided resources.

Внемля древним легендам, шли мы тропой предков, внимательно подбирая щедро разбросанные Природой ресурсы для красильщиков.


We felt like we were watched all times!

Казалось, что незримые глаза неотступно наблюдали за тем, что мы делали.


Did you know that cats strive for plants extracts? Each time we had a bowl with soaking leaves they would come, two or three, and gulp the water hungrily. In this bowl there are leaves of catalpa, strawberry, currents, pomegranate, some eucalyptus and cotinus.

Our place and environment provided a good deal of inspiration to get closer and discover the Nature’s secrets and recipes.

А вот известно ли вам, что коты очень предпочитают растительные экстракты? Неожиданное открытие!

И место, и окружение – все способствовало еще большему погружению в тайну Природного…


Great teamwork and mutual assistance. Guys, you are the best!

Взаимодействие в группе! Спасибо, ребята! Вы – лучшие!


Should I say that just browsing this seminar photo archive brings up warm and joyful thoughts in my mind… (More posts on the seminar results soon) 

I will be looking forward to the next year Textile Gathering in the Crimea as to the setting the mood for the year event! Thank you all and see you soon!

Перелистываю фото наших сборов, и тепло на душе! (еще будет пост про результаты). Спасибо всем! До скорого на следующих Текстильных встречах в Крыму!
