I wish you all a wonderful Christmas, hopefully you all have a lovely time with your family. I have ! Playing games, dancing and having delicious food. I enjoy it a lot to be home in Belgium (however I miss Paris also a little … ). During my free hours I’m in my atelier weaving on my new loom. Full with energy and new ideas.
Merry Christmas, and until soon !
In the pictures: Inspiration images on my loom, yarns, drawings for new patterns, and a book with little samples from my internship (the pink page is my favorite !)
2 things I love to do during my freetime are, first of all, taking care of my plants. Today I want to show you my favourite plants, first of all the pilea. I think he’s everyones favourite, he’s so different, beautiful and easy to take care of. And from the moment he’s big enough, he’s going to give you a lot of baby pilea’s. Can’t wait for that moment to arrive. And my other favourite plant is one I got from my neighbour, don’t know the name of it. But I love him a lot.
Another thing I like to do in my freetime, you never going to believe this, is weaving. I’m just relaxing behind my loom, making gifts for some friends. I love to surprise the people I love with a handwoven present, it’s such a good feeling to weave with them in mind.
Hope you all enjoy these days.
(soon I’ll post some pictures of the exhibition. yesterday was the opening night, and it was so lovely.)
By the way, I’m still searching for a place to live in Paris. From the end of september till the end of February. Can someone help me ? Feel free to spread the word.
I’m making a collection of woven blankets. I really love to play with colours and very soft yarns. At the moment I made 5 big pieces, but I still need to do the last finishing touches. So exciting.
On saturday Eefje will take beautiful pictures of my work, at Robbert’s place. I’m a little nervous, but I’m convinced that it will be great. Look forward to saturday. But it also mean that I have a deadline to catch, so this week will be all about early mornings and late-night-atelier-time.
Happy week !
Last week was filled with lovely things.
First of all, I was intrigued by windows. Like in picture 3, it’s a window in the port of Ghent, It felt so surreal to look into a window, and see such a wondeful view.
Next to that I’m working with different textile-companies to make some of my designs. Yesterday I was making yarns, that’s so much fun ! I also did some industrial weaving and lasercutting. The pictures you see are still ‘work in progress’, so they need some finishing touches. But the 27th of June will be the opening of the exhibition, and that will be the first moment that my work will showed to the public. Feel free to come. More information about it later.
