Exploring manual way of working for Textile Festival Analog2014


For my new cheerful series 'SunMoon' I experimented with different techniques to create new surface designs and fabrics. Due to the 40th anniversary of the 'Grafische Werkplaats' in The Hague I was invited to take part in a master class of the print specialist Daniel Henry. He combines innovation with respect for tradition and works for Chanel, Nina Ricci and Rochas. I have well exploited the possibilities of the manual way of working he showed during some summer sessions. Read also my blog post on Stylink (sorry Dutch only) about my process. This resulted in a series consisting of several 3 meter high decorative textiles (without repeat) and some large pillows of 65x65 cm. I combined a special screen-printing technique, with coatings, shrinkage, dyeing and layering different fabric qualities. The textiles are for sale and part of the Analog2014 Festival in The Hague from 6 to 26 September. Analog2014 takes place in various locations in the Hague, see www.analog2014.nl.
