KadK (Kunst aan de Kade) starts 2019 with an exhibition in Persingen. This year’s theme is ‘February – Winter – Ice’.
As mentioned before, I have tried to work on new techniques and skills. For this occasion I choose for felting (both wet felting and needle felting) in combination with hand embroidery. The online course ‘Exploring Texture and Pattern with Sue Stone’ was an amazing way to discover the almost endless possibilities even with a running stitch. Combining different yarns, varying in stitch-length, or distance between rows, are some of the basics that were so helpful in my journey of stitches and patches!
In the first weekend of February you can view works of art in the theme ‘February – Winter – Ice’.
For this exhibition I have been working with felt: wet felting, needle felting and hand embroidery. Working with natural material, such as fresh wool, is special. Wet felting is exciting: after laying out the pieces of wool, you might have an idea how it will turn out. But each time the result is a surprise, and with embroidery you can add texture to the final results.
