July 28th:

Everyone is here at the Paillard. We started with a nice croissant breakfast from 8:00, following the introduction from the production team and from Shelly.

From 10:00 to 13:00, we had our first skill share workshop session of traditional textile technique. We spread into 4 stations of Shibori, Leather embroidery, Quilting and Igne Oiyasi. In this session, we did not assign the participants to one station, but instead people can cruise around and pick up multiple techniques to try.

Leather embroidery was stationed outside in the court yard

In the afternoon, after the lunch, we sat outside in the front yard and had our first panel discussion session on “Beyond Kitsch”.

From 18:00- vernissage of our exhibition, “eTextile Cuvée 2014″ started. We had a lot of public visitors.
