With Irit you will learn botanical printing advanced techniques in a combination of different natural dyes. You are going to work on samples, analyze the results and identify the potentials. Than you will take it to an higher level focusing on a particular result. Special attention will be on design, composition on the fabrics and combining different leaves together for a 3D look.

In parallel small groups in as special created sewingroom you are going to work with Shahaf. You will start with an idea of your desire garment, learn how to draw your ideas, how to translate it to technical pattern by taking your measurements and drawing your pattern. When your garment is clear than you are going to take your textile samples and work with it in a relationship with your garment.

In the garment/sewing part each one with his own level can increase their knowledge and take it to another level. Project and complicity of garments will be given according to your own level.

About 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.
