Tomorrow evening we will open our creative workspace called “De Plantage” in Antwerp. It’s a big space where you can find my atelier. I share this with 3 other creative people, and we are very happy to show our space.
In June, we arrived in an empty space. Gray sad walls, no doors, only a lot of dust. After some months of working, the atelier is finished (I have to admid, I wasn’t the most handy in doing this renovation works. Oeps). And now everyone can have a look to “De plantage”.
I also decided to keep a little stocksale of some work I made a while ago. You can find some pouches, handbags, scraves, little textile works, postcards, …
The sale will be open from 19u – ….. (only cash)
You are all welcome !
Yesterday I went to the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven. It’s a large design event in a the Netherlands. For years I say that I want to go, and finally I had the oportunity to go. It was amazing ! Next year I certainly go back.
In the pictures you can see my impressions of the day. Unfortunately I didn’t wrote down all the names of the designers of the works that you can see in the pictures. But if you would like to go, visit for sure Klokgebouw, Tak, Design Academy, and Sectie C.
It was a very inspiring day, and it gave me a lot of new inspiration.
* We all love color *
The dutch design week is still running till sunday. Please go, if you have a day free !
Soon there will be a second expo of “Pots & Paper“. This time it will be in Ghent, the flyer will be finished soon. Because of this, I start to be inspired again by plants and all the suplies needed for taking care of plants. At the moment I’m experimenting with wood, to make little plant tables.
Plants plants plants.
You also can follow me now on Instagram. Often I don’t have time to put everything I see on my blog or facebook. So keep an eye on the instragram., because I try to post a picture every day. You are all welcome to have a look into my universe, creating process, and my addiction to good coffees.
I made some cushions for ‘De Maakbar’ (from 6 october till 8 december), a pop-up bar at the Buda Fabriek in Kortrijk.
It’s the first time I use my woven fabrics as cushion covers. It are still prototypes, so not yet for sale, but by working on this project, the idea of making more woven cushions starts growing. It’s already a long time an idea of me, to start a webshop. Maybe I have to search some time to realizing this idea.
I’ll keep you posted !
Last week I joined an exhibition to celebrate the opening of the new atelier called “Les Glaneuses”. It’s the creative workspace, based in Paris, of Julie Bourdais and Karen Fingerhut. For the openings expo, they invited 2 artists to show their work with them. It was a great experience, to show my work in a different country. And it was a pleasure to spend more time with my sweet friend Julie. And to get to know other sweet people.
Thanks for everyone who took the effort to come to the expo.
Unfortunately I only took pictures of the work of me and Julie. And I didn’t took pictures of the beautiful work of Valentine and Karen. But feel free to watch their websites to see their work.
