Never in my travelling life I have seen this much looms,
and most of them I saw by accident.
Maybe that's why I enjoyed our trip so much...

Next blogpost some Finnish textiles.
Or some Alvar Aalto architecture.
Or some nature pictures.
Just too much to show you.

What I am working on at the moment?
A blue scarf,
preparing an exhibition in december,
and trying to work on my new loom.
I did some heavy cleaning in my atelier,
for a photoshoot of our house,
but probably more about all that later!

+ It's getting cold here.
Time for some scarfweaving :-)

So this my interpretation of a red scarf.
It was a big search for different reds to combine,
and that in different materials;
there's some merino, alpaca, mohair, ...
I thought weaving a complete red scarf, in warp and weft, would have been too much.
And I like red being more red among other colours.
It's a big one, a soft one, a warm one.
And it's for sale! :-)

You can visit me and my scarf this weekend at Oeverture,
at Serweytens

Next weekend,
In Ghent: Oeverture!
I'm showing and selling one scarf,
together with the work of
Dominique Dufait (leather),
Jeannine Vrins (ceramics),
Lie Vandrie (ceramic jewellery),
and our theme is RED.

The scarf has lots of red,
but weaving one colour just isn't my cup of tea...
So there's also blue, grey, white, orange...

You can find us on 6, 7, 8 september,
at Serweytens
Onderbergen 39
9000 Gent

Hope to see you! :-)
