Last August I started my work experience in place called Sininen Verstas (=blue workshop). First five months I was in atelier Rotondo learning how to dye fabrics and use different kind of templates to create patterns. And then I was another five months in atelier Satroria learning to sew and do any kind of 3D creations with fabrics. Nothing has been as inspiring as this period in Sininen Verstas.
It feels impossible to show all the things I've done there, but I'll try to show my favourites.
We usually started our days with a random painting. It was a good starter before heading to the main things of the day. We had some light guidelines and then we used 10-30 minutes to paint something, usually mindflow. Here are some of my dry pastel favourites.
Painting fabrics with free technique and then sewing them as new covers. Now I can turn every boring notebook and file into more visually satisfying.
Most of the time in Rotondo we learned different kinds of batik dyeing techniques. All of the colours were self-combined from pigments, so the colours were unique.

My art book is heavily inspired by the movie Hellraiser, which I had seen just few days before doing this book.
|cardboard, rubber and chicken wire|
|...and favourite ingredient: duct tape!|
|Encyclopaedia of Sadomasochism|

No wait. I want to separate these things I've made in two. Here you have seen things I'm very proud of, but probably won't be doing anymore in near future. Because of lack of inspiration or resources. I want to give a proper spotlight to the things I'd love to do even more. So the last Year of Silence post will be about three things I'm very passionate about and would like to do even more: jewelry, upgrading clothes and stencils.
