In 2011 I participated in the New Mokume-Gane training with Monique Gülicher in the same way and in 2016 I taught the course Silver Quilling together with Renske Dussel.
At the beginning of 2018 Edith, Shirley Wouters and I went to Japan to acquire the necessary skills. The elaboration of this training and the repetition of the various applied Origami techniques have ensured that we now know at least how things shouldn’t be done.
The past 3 days we enjoyed the presence of:
- Renske Dussel from "Renske-Art" in Terherne
- Margit Borst - Topper of "Zilver en Zo" in Dieverbrug
- Tine Demol from "Actino" in Veldegem (Belgium)
- Judy Kars from Uithoorn
- Barbera Ploeg of "Atelier 015" in Pijnacker
- Ingrid Wijnen from Tananger (Norway)
Katty van der Elst from "Zandstorm" in Erps-Kwerps (Belgium) has also registered for this course. Unfortunately she broke her wrist a day before the start, which is why she had to cancel. Katty, we really missed you, you are always a happy note within our network. Tine also missed you. After all, in the evening she had to enter the forest house in Nunspeet completely alone and in the dark 😉
A number of ladies from this group are certified for the Quilling and have worked a little more with ACS Paper Type in recent years than the average colleague instructor. That makes the explanation easier, one knows how to deal with the material. And they have worked hard. Great results!

Hard work makes you hungry and we satisfy this appetite every afternoon with delicious sandwiches, salads and fresh orange juice.
Back home, Edith and I discuss the situation and plan the work for the last day. She is in Harderwijk from Friday to Monday and stays cozy in our bare attic room. Normally our daughter Nevada stays in that room. She is infected with the well-known storage sickness of an Indo, so we thought it was time to paint this room once again and to decorate it and upholster it. By now I got the uneasy feeling that any archaeologist would like to do an excavation on our attic floor, hahaha. Loving daughter offered to stay with her friend, so Edith had the now very empty room for her alone.
Everything comes to an end, today we have completed this training around 15.00.
Edith offers a helping hand with tidying up and cleaning, for which my esteemed thanks. In 2016 I was able to leave a clean and tidy building after the training. Even today everything looks like picobello when I quit to get in the car with Michael.
Success with folding, success with Origami Jewelery!
