Textile Plus arts and crafts

Sorry, I will write in english here because I think that is better to understand. (I am Dutch)

I had an exposition last week in Den Bosch, the Netherlands, together with my friends Linda Lammerts and Anneke Spijker. Together we are a collectief called “LAK”.

The things that I made are ‘the cirkels of forgotten memories”. My mother died last year of dementia and the last things that remained where her memories of her early childhood, her brothers and sisters and parents. She had forgotten me, her daughter.

An other work is “Silk play”, I worked with silk fibers, natural seeds and embroidery, crochet.

The last work is ‘Recylcle”, made in a period that I could not felt, so I had a look in my box and worked with old pieces of felt, yarn and silk.

The exposition was visited by thousands of people, there were over 80 artists and a crafts market.

Hope you like to see my pictures…
