This is the pillow I did today with a yellow fabric I bought at Stockholm.
Now I'm back from my stay in Sweden. I enjoyed it very much because I met so wonderful people and the workshop was very interesting because most of the students worked the first time with an embellisher. They all did great and we had many beautiful pieces.
Tilleke Schwarz and Dorothy Tucker were the other teacher. Tilleke showed us photos of her work with embroidery and words while Dorothy spoke about kanthas. I enjoyed both talks a lot.
Tilleke had some copies of her book with her body of work "Mark Making". It's wonderful.
Pian Bates had also her book about embroidery that recently appeared and is worth seeing.
All was organized by the Embroidery Academy of Stockholm and the Symposium took place in a school in a picturesque Swedisch landscape to the north of Stockholm.
It was my first time in Sweden and I visited many museums and design shops and exhibitions in Stockholm with Annica (right) and Susan of Cyber Fyber (left):
Annica already has some photos of the Symposium on her blog. They were the most wonderful sightseeing companions.
I look forward to visit Sweden once more as soon as I can. I'm really in love with it!
Jetzt bin ich von Schweden zurück, wo ich die tollsten Erfahrungen gemacht habe. Selten habe ich eine Reise so genossen.
Tilleke Schwarz und Dorothy Tucker waren die anderen Lehrerinnen, die über ihr Werk auch sprachen. Dorothy sprach über Kanthas. Bitte folgen Sie die Links, die ich im englischen Text habe.
