Irit Dulman

Irit Dulman works in her studio in Givatayim, just outside TLV, but her inspiration seems to lack borders of time and place. Her colours, textures and designs are sensually bold, seductive, introvert as well as daring. There is nothing obvious in her work, for it has it’s own reason and feminine insight.


All workshops are being taught in Dutch and/or English. We will serve fresh coffee and homemade lunches with healthy salades, farmers bread and several Dutch cheeses.
