Brigitte Eertink - Atelier Rozevilterije
My name is Brigitte Eertink.
I live in a colorful house in the Netherlands and have been captivated by the process of felt making since 8 years .
For me the great joy of felting is the creation of my own unique fabric.
Felting allows me to create with my hands what I see in my mind. The possibilities are really endless!
Actually, to felt for me is to play. Playing with colors, materials, and techniques. Just following your hands and be surprised!
In my felting I combine a lot of different techniques to create my own unique fabric, in colors that I love!
My work is romantic and fairylike and I love to use soft pastel colors like pink, lilac, purple and turquoise.
Colors and color combinations inspire me the most.
Old pictures, shapes and figures like dots, hearts, spirals and roses, also inspire me a lot.
Besides felting I love all other craft techniques. I love to knit, crochet, embroider and spin. My work is always a combination of these techniques. For me, felt is the basis and it doesn’t feel finished when I haven’t added some embroidery, a little bit of crochet or some beads.
After I finish the felting it usually takes me several hours to add all these other things. Compared to the physically demanding process of felting, doing the embroidery or beading feels relaxing to me.
In the backyard I have a nice, cozy, colorful studio where I love to work and love to teach everything I know to other people.
My goal is to inspire people with my work and to make the world a little bit more colorful!
I teach workshops in my own studio but when people invite me I come over to teach at their studio.
That could be in the Netherlands but also on other places all over the world.
