What you will do
First, funeral director and Still Life curator Susanne Duijvestein will introduce you to the tradition of the burial shroud, including its meaning and practicalities.
In this edition with Roos Soetekouw, you will create a shroud from pre-used fabrics and determine your personal embroidery or stitching design. The idea of this workshop is that you determine the design of your shroud, start creating and bring it back home to continue working on it. Of course, the shroud doesn’t have to be a single use object. You could for instance decide to wear it during rites of passage, or hang it as a tapestry in your home.
From her great love for nature and it’s unusual shapes and colors, the work of textile designer Roos Soetekouw shows an explosion of discoveries in form, color, technique and material. Her research is mostly expressed in textile designs and interior accessories, creating a personal world of textile that provides warmth and protection. Besides her own studio, Roos also teaches at the Artemis Academy.
