A visit at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie Graduation Show

Today I visited the Graduation Show of Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. Two buildings, together 10 floors of the the final work from all departments. A lot of video, installation and performances. Very little painting. The design lab’s exhibition was excellent. The work of the architecture department was very impressive. The fashion design was particularly good. All together great pleasure.

My textile workshop

I’m very excited to have a workshop inspired by my art-work at  Atelier Oosterbosch. The idea and initiation was all in the hands of the amazing Anita Oosterbosch. We are going to make a collage and then translate it to a beautiful textile-art-work. looking forward…:-) Two last things: Check this great “the art cake“ art site runs by very lovely Christi! and this amazing summer days here make me so damn happy…     Some pictures I’ve took at the last workshop  

The Takiyaje world

The works of Nalogina Lubov are nothing less than stunning. Her imagination and the detailed work is an invitation to dive into her fabulous world.   +Sorry my dear friends for not participating in the last “drawing challenge.” As you probably noticed I had some technical problems on my blog (as well on my computer) flexed only this morning. Thank you for bringing this to my attention ..:-)

Collar me pretty

I have a soft spot for collars, you can tell by this and that. Only recently I discovered that this collar has a wonderful name: Peter pan. Trough the following links you can find very nice tutorials how to make one yourself. : ) From the top: faux fur collar, ASOS Leather Peter Pan Collar, Jolie Môme Peter Pan Collar, Collar gif, Vintage collar, Peter pan, Giant polka dot, Peter Pan collar tutorial,Vintage-collar-quick-fix
