Yesterday I went to see the annual (since last year)
"Textile Art", the only textile event in Berlin
which, as far as I know, doesn´t focus mainly/only
No photos, though, that wasn´t allowed (silly, really,
dozens of signs everywhere making sure no one forgets it...)
It takes place in a (quite ugly) school building, but pleasantly
spacious, just 1 or 2 stalls per room.
A highlight is a beautiful exhibition of Korakdusi quilts
from Turkmenistan, from a private collection.
Bought myself a present, and am very pleased with it:
a stack of 48 indigo squares from South Africa, each
with a different pattern...
... and I attended a 2-hour-workshop on free hand
machine writing, which brought me a little closer to
feeling able to tackle it...
