Postcard from my Workshop - Kids - Printing on Fabric

Printing on Fabric Workshop - Kids
Today I challenged my small group of kids to decorate and sew some mini fabric houses. First we used heat transfer paint (in the form of collage) and then added some stamps (using fabric paint stamping pads). Here are the results...
The kids are fairly young (7 and 8 years old) but they have been working with me for the past 3 years, so they already tried many different techniques and they are incredibly independent. We also sewn on the sewing machine together, since they love doing it.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to comment under the post.

Postcard from my Workshop - Mini Me Dolls

Dear follower, friends and random readers,
I am aware that the content of my blog and the frequency of posts got lately a bit out of hands... It is due to my life outside of the virtual space. As it requiers a lot of attention at the moment, the time for blogging is very limited. On the other hand, events that worth blogging about are more frequent than ever, especially as I currently give variety of workshops. To solve this discrepancy, I have decide to offer "Postcard from my Workshop" -  short (visual) overview of an event.

If you are interested in taking part in one of the future events or have questions about the activity, please comment below the post. I am always happy to hear from you. ;-)

Mini Me Dolls - Workshop
(at Hands Gallery, 21st June 2014)
We had a great fun making the dollies yesterday!The photo collage offers glimpses of different stages of the project. From designing the dress to taking the cute little creation home...

Description of the workshop:
This workshop is suitable for everyone and it is a great fun! You can create a little soft doll with your own face (or the face of your loved-one). It is a great present for a child newly attending kindergarten or going to a summer camp. It can be given as a token of affection to a friend, who is getting married or to someone, who just got a baby. Please note that the dolls are not suitable for small children that tend to explore everything with their mouth but they are great companions for toddlers and older kids. It is also a fun activity for a group of mums, co-workers, creative ladies' day out or a bachelorette party.

Please note, that the workshop takes min.3 hours, as the image transfer needs time to dry.

Max. 5 participants per session
Cost: 30EUR/per person (inkludes all material)

Welcome to the fairytale in central Germany

As much as I do not like saying this, I must admit, that I had no idea that these fantastic places are in Central- and also partially former East-Germany! No, this is NOT the notorically known Rottenburg!!! These are small towns in the region called Harz. The name refers mainly to a mountain range and the surrounding area and the highest hill "Brocken" is the place where all the witches meet...

Welcome to the Fairytale...

I am a fairytale buff. I love history and a good story and medieval castels and small romantic towns just work for me. Check out the pictures and you will understand why...

If you plan to explore Germany this Summer, make sure that you plan your journey through Quedlinburng, Wernigerode and Goslar...

This is the amazing medieval Quedlinburg with its rather unique romanesque church and deliciously wonky houses...


This fantastic castle is in Wernigerode. Complete with dragons, fabulous view and rather eclectic collection...

Goslar, was once the city of Emperor Barbarosa and the bronz lion is a copy of the oldest bronz sculpture north of the Alps.

All tows are very well prepared for tourists and you can find the widest variety of cafes, restaurants and shops, including lots of hand-made and artistic goods. It is possible to visit all 3 in one day but the area is wonderful, so an overnight stay in one of these charming places must be also an unforgetable experience...

Spread the word and definitelly visit!!!
