|Tulip in Amsterdam|
There was 2 amazing workshops in the Netherlands with the workshops named Garden to Garment. It was a good title as the plants came from the participants gardens and the beautiful garden of my host Dorie
I am grateful to India for blessing me to work and teach in her methods and I have added to the immense respect I already have for her work, when working with plants from Gardens in the other hemisphere! So much to learn and I would love to have more time to explore all the potential of their colours.
We wrapped and printed wool and silk on day one . You can see the patented Pam method of wrapping tightly if you hands aren't strong enough, just tie the end to a door handle and use the weight of your body to pull against. We combined samples and stitched and felted garments in day 2
I managed a couple of days to get into Amsterdam. Those canals are so beautiful and the tall buildings on each side let this girl know she wasn't in Kansas anymore.
