Introducing my new Carnival wallhanging. A design – handwoven in the passement-technique – that celebrates color. Passement is the art of handweaving decorative ribbons. A lost technique that I have revived, but in an enlarged and modern format. Carnival is a bright and colourful wall art which is woven with luxury yarns as 100% merino wool, 100% silk and combined with paracord. As implied by its name, color is a recurring element in the design of my passementerie series.
Elizabeth Ashdown (based in the UK) is an artist who gives passement courses. So I decided to follow one of her courses. Her course was an eye-opener for me as it is such a versatile weaving structure.
A splash of color
The graphic expression of the handwoven design comes together in the use of colours and yarns which makes this design looks light, airy and is a real eye-catcher. Contrasting yarns and how the design elements are woven ensure a design that is modern, luxurious and full of character.
With its modern and luxurious look, the handcrafted Carnival wallhanging will fit beautifully in your living room, bedroom or dining room.
Carnival is unique and available in a single number.
Format : 69×90 cm Materials : merino wool, silk, paracord and packaging ribbon. Design and woven by : Ilse Philips

De Kunst-Post opdracht is in volle gang en de voorbereiding loopt op rolletjes ! Wijck-Zoetermeer benaderde mij of ik wou meewerken aan het project Kunst-Post. 30 zelfstandig wonende ouderen uit Oosterheem, Seghwaert en Meerzicht ontvangen tweewekelijks een creatieve opdracht aan huis. Verschillende kunstenaars bedenken de opdrachten. Als kunstenaar Toegepast Textiel bij Franx/Terra Artprojects Zoetermeer, heb ik een opdracht bedacht dat de deelnemers prikkelt om anders naar textiel te kijken. Een update volgt zodra de opdracht is uitgedeeld aan de deelnemers.
Ik stel de opdracht samen, werk ze uit en zet ze klaar. Via de (besloten) Facebookgroep Kunst-Post zullen we begeleiding geven aan de deelnemers. De deelnemers ontdekken nieuwe en andere kanten van zichzelf. Samen met de andere kunstenaars hoop ik zo bij te dragen aan minder vereenzaming. Blijven leren en ontwikkelen draagt bij aan een positieve zingeving. Het eindresultaat is 6 kunstwerken per deelnemer en een expositie in de wijk.
Weaving a vintage moose wall art on my 16-shaft loom was always on my to-do list. I finally decided to spend some time designing this in a 16-shaft summer & winter technique. Eva Stossel has written a nice blog about this summer & winter technique. Summer & winter is a Scandinavian block weaving, woven with 2 shuttles. It’s special because the front and back are inverted. In the old days, plaids woven with this technique were very common in Sweden. During winter they showed one side of the plaid, in summer they showed the other side. So a wallhanging, plaid or table runner made with this technique can be displayed both ways. Because I wanted to have an ‘old Scandinavian’ vintage look, I choose green alpaca for the pattern and unbleached cottolin for the ground cloth. The moose are separated by a ‘green lawn’ in silk yarn.
