News Part One:
My work is selected for De Invasie Toont,
Two scarves will be in the exhibition,
from 7 may, in the Design Museum in Ghent!
News Part Two:
My work is selected for Nationa(a)l, the pop-up vitrine on Belgian talent:
"Belgium and its emerging creative talents are the central topics of our debate.
The richness of this nationally spread cultural event lies in the event itself,
and it is even more interesting to notice how this event actually reflects reality.
We also see Nationa(a)l as a proponent of an intelligent exhibiting and curating process.
Nationa(a)l stands for first-rate and carefully selected content that comes to life.
Nationa(a)l is a guarantee for quality in the cultural sector
and works with the simple and pure aim of letting you discover it."
From 8 - 17 may 2015 in Brussels!
(Many thanks to Linda Van Waesberge for selecting me.)
The pictures above show my experiments for the small collection I will show in Brussels.
Summer textiles in summer colours.
And in linen.

Each time I finish a scarf,
I have to get used to its image.
And by the time I'm there,
I want to keep it for myself.
Every last scarf is the most beautiful one I have ever made.
And that's a good feeling.

What have I been up to?
My booth at Première Vision!
It really was a new experience selling my own pattern designs
and I'm planning to go back in september.
There's an exhibition of *Design Vlaanderen* with some of my work,
more practical info here...
And a video about me and my weaving here!
Picture three and four:
A scarf just finished and again surprising to me,
more pictures on their way.
The latest project, weaving a scarf with natural dyed yarn by Atelier Ailim.
There's more nice news I have to keep a secret for just a little while.
But I promise to be back here more often.
And some weaving candy over here:
Have a great week!

Hope you all had a good start of the year!
I have been dyeing yarn for the first time,
weaving that yarn,
and making plans for my new job ofcourse.
Weaving scarves has gotten a bit neglected,
but not forgotten.
I Hope everyone waiting for their scarf is not too cold
and can forgive me the delay...

“I take the approach of a watercolor painter with a limited palette,” he says.
He uses his natural fermented indigo for blues, purples, and greens.
Black walnut leaves and nuts make the browns;
madder root and cochineal the reds.
And grape leaves and weld provide the yellows.
He mixes and blends these to create a broad, vibrant rainbow.”
Greg King spins, dyes and weaves.
And makes me jeaulous.
