Event description

Description

Tilleke Schwarz is an international textile artist of great reknown and she will lead this workshop, which focuses on design, allowing participants to design a new work in their own style and tell their own stories. The workshop will start with experiments in mixed media and collage. These techniques on paper allow students to feel completely free to try out new ideas. Participants will enjoy the adventure of designing while working, resulting in inspiration for a new work.

Demonstrations will include Tilleke’s favorite hand embroidery techniques. Hand-stitching is fun and relaxing but time-consuming; students should not expect to finish a new work in the workshop. The aim is to leave with plenty of new ideas and a start for a new work.

In case you have questions related to the workshop you can contact her by email info@tillekeschwarz.com

Tilleke Schwarz is a member of the 62 group of textile artists, the Surface Design Association, the European Textile Network and the Schilderkundig Genootschap Pulchri Studio in The Hague. She has exhibited and lectured all over the world and has won several prizes for her work, including the European Coats Mez Sponsor price for Modern Embroidery Design in 1990 and the third prize in the Summer Exhibition 2011 in the Gemeentemuseum The Hague.
