Textile Art

Embroidery, knitting, quilting, it all sounds a bit old hat. But if you look in the right places, you’ll soon dicover a whole world of contemporary textile art.

I found the Dutch textile artist Mieke Werner on the beautiful and very interesting website of  Textile Plus, magazine. Since 1983 Mieke makes sculptures of textiles . Please have a look at her website for more pictures of her amazing work!
