It is hard to believe that I am already half way the two-year course Textile Arts and Art Quilt, offered by the DIY Textile School in Amsterdam. So much new information, new techniques, new inspiration, and don’t forget the friendships! We started a What’s App group, and are keeping each other updated on the progress of our home work, but also share our doubts, questions, advice, and ideas for joint museum visits or workshops. Different artists taught us about (textile) art history and the techniques they practice. I really enjoy my monthly trips on a Saturday morning to the DIY Textile School, and am impressed and inspired each time we show and tell about our work and exercises. It leaves not much time for other work, however, I know that there will be years to come to apply all the new techniques in future fabric projects! Happy Summer!
