Feltfull 2013 Impressions- The Netherlands


Our beautiful studio space...



...and some literal 'impressions' using plants for dyeing.

 
We visited farms and botanical gardens...



...and enjoyed a mini fashion show starring Vilte's students!



There were museums and exhibitions...



...but we also spent peaceful hours enjoying the natural beauty of this wonderful country.



Some of us also made some veeerrry colorful art-to-wear pieces...

...like hats...



...and jewelry!



I couldn't wait any longer.

I just had to show you the photos from my incredible class in The Netherlands!

There were caring and amazingly talented teachers...

...a large group of experienced feltmakers from all over the world...

...and a lovely studio in which to work.

In short, my week at Feltfull was a beautiful and memorable experience...

...and I'm happy to say that I now have a lovely group of new friends! (Yay!)

I'll return to regular posting again in July after my 'blog break'.
