I will welcome you in my Workshop, where you will find fresh coffee/ tea, candlelights and cosy music. Make yourself comfortable, while I'm introducing the plan for the next hours. I have prepared, what is needed for you to go home with a beautiful little textile artwork. I will start teaching you, how the different elements of the mushroom is constructed. After that you are ready to choose the perfect fabric for your special mushroom. I will show you, how quite ordinary fabrics can be transformed into really interesting "mushroom-material "with a little paint and other "secret liquids " While you are waiting a short while for the fabric to dry, you can have another cup of coffee, a little chit chat or maybe take a rest in the garden. Now it's time to cut, wrap, sew, stuff, embroider and elaborate your own unique kind of mushroom. My books of real mushrooms might inspire you. Mushrooms can be made by hand, or you can do some of the sewing on the sewing machine. You decide. I will teach you how to supply with interesting details as roots, dots and stains to make a delicious look. You will end up going home with a little, unique, textile mushroom-souvenir.
I teach textile arts and crafts. I graduated from one of Denmark's most recognised textile schools "Skals design og håndarbejdsskole". Experimental textile work has been my passion and profession ever since. The vibrant energy and mindful atmosphere that arises, while I share my knowhow, tips, tricks and enthusiasm about textile arts and crafts, is the reason why I do my workshops. The event is taking place in my private workshop/gallery close to Aarhus C.
