Colours of Africa event in Belgium

Here is the link to the page of the event where I will be having some of my work in an exhibition that I keep mentioning.

Colours of Africa

A Textile event in "De Oude Pastorij", Essen, Belgium on 17 & 18 April 2010.

Organised by Trapsuutjies Fabric Paint in cooperation with the Town Council of Essen and together with Connection and Yda Walt.

  • 4 Textile artists have come together under the name Connection and will exhibit their work during this event.
    Annette Jeukens, Hella Sluyters, Jacqueline de Jong-van Baalen and Laura Liebenberg have chosen the cylinder as shape for this exhibition.

  • Our guest artist is Yda Walt from South Africa. Yda designs fabric using iconic South African images. Screenprinting and lino-cutting are two of her specialities. You can view her work on her website: www.ydawalt.co.za

During the event you will be able to browse in a few shops which have a connection with South Africa. So far the following shops will be present:
- the African Fabric Shop from England, well known for their fantastic collection of fabrics, beads, buttons etc.
- Trapsuutjies Fabric Paint known for its good quality paints, stamps and stencils from South Africa.
