I just put a new course up on the DIY website. It is a 2 year program in Textile Arts. I am really excited about it since there are so few programs on offer in this area. It will be absolutely fun to see this develop! I am in contact with teachers now and working out all the dates, so more information is still to come.
A number of years ago, I also was looking for a program just like this, a place to go as an older student, where I could learn about fiber arts. I wanted to learn about art and design theory, develop my skills in artistic design with textiles, and experiment, experiment, experiment. After taking a course here, a workshop there, a program here and lesson or two there…I decided it was high time to set up a school where one could really focus and develop their talents with excellent instructors, in a group with other like-minded people, with clear guidance throughout the creative process. With a Masters Degree in Creativity in Education and the teaching of many “bekende textielkunstenaars” in my repetoire, I am ready to offer you with the help of many of these same artists a top program!
