Web circle “Self-determined”
Annelie Kunst, Cilia van der Wende, Gerda van der Greft, Hannie Bulsink, Mariet Quist, Rieneke van der Plicht and Tiny Wentink all come from our region.
When you tell friends and acquaintances that you are weaving, people quickly think of wolen socks and sandals. Nobody realizes that we all come into contact with and use and wear woven materials every day.
Hand weaving has existed as long as mankind dresses in clothing and is still carried out in many ways around the world as a beautiful handicraft.
There are many more options on the modern hand loom than just producing household textiles, curtains, pillowcases and clothing using wool, silk and cotton, no matter how beautiful it all can be.
If we use copper wire, stainless steel wire, plastic, willow twigs or rubber, together with different techniques and fantasie, we get extraordinary results, you may think of objects, wall hangings, bags and jewelry.
All of this, inspired by the theme of “beautifully decorated”, the web circle “self-determined” wants to show during the exhibition in Kerkje De Rietstap in Dinxperlo.
We are looking forward to see you!
