Judit Pócs, Dagmar Binder, Inge Evers, Márti Csille und Vanda Róbert...

...were teaching this summer in the south of Hungary one week long.
From left to right: Dagmar Binder, Márti Csille, Judit Pócs, Inge Evers and in the front Vanda Róbert.

With Dagmar we made nuno felt shawls on silk chiffon, at Márti's we created felt jewelry combined with hammered wires, Judit let everyone make what he wants(we only had to choose 2 techniques at max.), Inge inspired first playing with different textiles and than we felted a "bleep" which hides a treasure we took with us. With Vanda we made cushions with a meshwork inlay as decoration.

These 5 women not only look different, they also teach different and they act different. Also the students were very different: some loved one of the courses and disliked another one, other loved this disliked class and didn't like the third...but everybody could find one which really touched his style and could learn some fluffy tricks from others.


There is no shop in this small village. Twice a week there came a vegetable carriage and every day the ice-cream-van. There the ladies weren't be shy to queue.

The 50 students lived in different summer houses. We were put in there in a sensational international mix: In our mansion I was from Hungary (but I'm half German). One of the girls from Germany is a real Hungarian. Our mate from the Netherlands has her roots mothersides in Hungary. The girl from Ireland was spanish. Only Finland and USA were "real" attendents. Carmen Carmen, couldn't let it after 2 days an began to cook and bake for us. Yes we had double meals: the official one and "Carmen's kitchen" It was as happy as on the photo at dinner...and after.

We got a lot of help: some assistants always brought us hot water and took away the dirty one from the buckets.

Am At the end of the felt camp there was an exhibition where eveyone could show the favorite of his works.
Here are some of my colleagues:

Stay tuned if you would like to come next year, I'll post the freshest details as I get them. Have a nice day!.
