Eco Print Workshop with Irit Dulman

I was very lucky to be able to attend a workshop with the very talented Irit Dulman organized by Luciana Morrone and  Andrea Bustelo in Buenos Aires just a couple of weeks ago.
I had very little previous experience with this technique so it was a great honor to learn with such a talented botanical print artist.




                                                       Eucalyptus leaves and tree bark

                          Unwrapping, my favorite part.....rose leaves...

Thank you Irit, it was a pleasure meeting you ....

Felting in Holland with Sharit

Organizing Sharit's workshops in Buenos Aires was a lot of work. we met up in London to work out details, spoke on the phone and ohundreds of emails went back and forth.
Once Charity arrived to Buenos Aires it was all go, cutting silks, dyeing, wool, plastics, tapes, the hotel, heating water, coffee, lunches, tango classes, BBQ, trip to Iguazu falls, etc etc. we all had a fantastic time but no time for felting for me:(
Charity flew back to Holland on a Sunday and the following Saturday I flew to the UK to visit family, catch up with friends and then before flying back to BA I flew with my husband to Holland to do some felting with Charity in her home studio and do a little bit of  sightseeing.

We visited Groningen

The dress I wanted make
