Workshop by Els Van Baarle

Three days workshop under the tutorship of Els Van Baarle, textile artist from the Netherlands was absolute magic.  Working on paper and fabric, we applied many layers of dye, wax, print to create complexity of design.  Drizzling rain did little to dampen our efforts.

The process of application was patiently demonstrated by Els, then we were free to apply the techniques using our own style of design & ideas.  The solid foundation of technique was achieved over the three days, and our class enjoyed playing with ideas.  Here are some of my efforts, some which were completed once home again.

More to come!
