It is all out of order chronologically, but for some reason this makes sense to me. I guess taking care of "business" before I rant about Florence. Of course, even "business" for me is an absolute joy and when you work with people like I have come to know at DHG, it is difficult to separate one from the other.
So, grab that nuno felted throw blanket again and a glass of wine and come along with me again....
DHG and we zip through the streets of Prato headed toward my cozy retreat for the next few days....
"Here you go! G'nite!"...Umm, really? The utilitarian door and the graffiti are zero indication of what lies behind and I just LOVE the juxtaposition of this door and the magical space.
Dinner with my new dear friend, Lisbeth at a charming place that was a former stable. I still owe you a drink, Lisbeth!
Coffee never tasted so good. Very strong.
Textile Museum of Prato. I was part of the touring group exhibition "The Climate is Changing" which opened here several years ago. This was the beginning of my connection with the Italian feltmakers and curator of my exhibition "Materia Vitale" Eva Basile.
Back at DHG a handsome (and talented, and...) Italian man, Daniel, was setting up to film a video interview with me. I will, of course, let you know when it is available to view (that is if Daniel uses a magic filter that conceals my lack of sleep. just kidding!)
Day one came to a quick close. Time flies when you are having fun!
Success at Piumi
After lunch on day #2 we went on a tour of the exhibition which brought me on a little side demo for an interesting 3D element. Marta takes notes!
