Phantasmagorical felt of Marjolein Dallinga

Here is reproduced in its integrality, the chronicle announced a few days ago on the visit of the show La Fabrique culturelle .tv” by Tele-Quebec on the premises of Studio 42, the magical place where Marjolein Dallinga draws inspiration from the rejuvenating nature of the Laurentian region in Quebec.

Nature that she appreciates above all else, it is also the place where she will henceforth give workshops devoted to her Art in a paradisiac framework favoring the creation and the expression of the natural talents just waiting to emerge in a place as beautiful!

And now, let’s see the report! :

Phantasmagorical felt of Marjolein Dallinga

Having had the chance to experiment and refine her technique with Cirque du Soleil and rub shoulders with the great François Barbeau, Marjolein Dallinga brings the ancient technique of felting away from busy trails. His pieces are large, long, colorful, organic, spectacular. Sometimes they go, or else blend in nature. Walk and meet at the Bloomfelt workshops in Gore, in the Laurentians.

Marjolein’s practice is so singular that many organizations all over the world are asking this woman every year to come and teach felting at home. She also devotes several months a year to teaching, a journey that often allows her to revisit her native country, the Netherlands.
