The new in-person workshops …

… are now online. We start at October 14th with “Textur-Days” (see pictures below) and we shall have another workshop starting in November about free machine stitching on copper, puter and perhaps more.

But since these are in-person-courses they might not be so interesting for my visitors from far away. What might be more for you is here, my online-courses in english language: http://www.lange-nadel.de/en/online-kurse/lange-leine/

Christmas embroideries

Once a year, at Santa Claus, the members of our Forum share little christmas embroideries. Here we show you some of the pieces – hopefully getting you into christmas mood.

Book Art Workshop

This weekend we had the first book art workshop in my atelier. The statement of Karl Valentin “Art is beautiful, but a lot of work” was not at all our experience, because we had an awful lot of fun! The weather was lovely and we explored exciting techniques like collage and texture for book covers, embossing, foam printing and experimental calligraphy. Here are some intermediate results. Finished work will follow.

Ice flowers in the sunlight

The new advanced course started very good with this beautiful piece of embroidery, reflecting the mood of today: Ice flowers in the sunlight – made by  Simone Spychiger

Bright colours for gray days

These are first results from the new online bookbinding course. Same of the books are made from fabric, others from paper or craft vilene, many of the materials come from a former online workshop about Eco-printing.
