Today I did a workshop about how to give old textiles a new life. Everyone had to bring a piece of textile that wasn’t beautiful anymore, or a piece with little mistakes in it. I brought a little babycardigan, there were a few stitches who were broke. I tought this was very beautiful. It’s sad that there wasn’t enough time to make a complete piece of it.
It was actually very difficult to listen to the material, and to doesn’t think about what it will be. It’s a new kind of working and I love it. You just have to see what the material is telling you, and trust on that. Just try to put your brain off, and just follow a feeling.
