One day workshops also in 2014

We were asked to organise more one day workshops. You will get a kind of 'schnupfercurse' and can taste a bit of the teachers way of working with felt. We started to introduce the one days this year with some teachers and it will continue 2014. The workshops with Irene van de Wolf can be followed also in separately. Andrea Graham will teach a 1day jewelry workshop , Leiko Uchi has a 1day pine-needle baret workshop and Anita Larkin in september also offers a 1day workshop.

New upcoming workshops!

We have been working on new exciting workshops for 2014. We are pleased that Minka de Weerd will be here to give a workshop with Silverclay and Felt at 24-25 May 2014. This will be right after Andrea Graham, which will be a good combination for the ones further away. Some of you have already seen the workshop with Leiko Uchiyama, who makes splendid fine 'pine needle' felt, which looks as almost knitted fabric.

Two 'Aussies' with Dutch roots shall be here, Martien van Zuylen and Pam de Groot. Both will make a tour through Europe with a startingpoint at Atelier Fiberfusing. We are working on the programms with Jorie Johnson (august), Anita Larkin (september) and Pamela Macgregor (October). There is still a lot of work to do here, but we will keep you informed. You will find a list below and you can click on the blue lines for more information about each individual workshop.

ArtWear Jordaan / meet and greet

The shop will be open extra in November and December 2013 on the mondayafternoon from 13.00-16.30. Although the weather is grey and rainy, the window will be styled in all kind of whites to get in the mood of Christmastime.

A visit to the shop combines perfectly with a walk over the Noordermarkt on mondaymorning. De Noordermarkt is known by their stalls with fabrics and all kind of textile accescoiries. It closes at 13.00hr.

Just come to the shop to say hello and have a chat and a cup of tea. ArtWear Jordaan, Brouwersgracht 145 in Amsterdams is only 5 minutes walking away from the market. See you!
