Travel + teaching makes colorful life 生活 - 寓教學於旅遊

Soon I will have a workshop for the making of eco prints and nuno felting in Vancouver, Canada. 
With nature inspiration to make own hand printed botanical pattern and felt it into garment is kind of slow fashion. 
這兩個月我遠行旅遊及教學,八月份英倫、愛爾蘭之行是與友交流聚舊,九月的加拿大是深度教學與旅遊,其間在溫哥華 BC 省主要是教授植物印染及羊毛混纎時尚衣飾製作。

 In the workshop I will teach how to imprint directly with leaves, weeds or flowers gathered locally onto silk fabric then make it into wearables. For more info please contact Genoa Daniel  or Norman Janes

During the sessions students will learn the prints making with natural resources, extracts and mordants from basic to fabulous shades.


After the first part of the workshop, students will make a multi styled wrap (scarf-vest) with nuno felt skills.

The printed yardage can also be sewed into garment at home or with nuno felt skills make it into a seamless tunic dress in the second part of the workshop.  Students will have hands on experiments of making eco prints samples and two pieces of finished garments.  That's the workshop scheduled in
 Sept 22-25, 2017

In Aug and Sept I am off to Europe and Canada. Before my first leg in London and Ireland this week, I grasped the nice hiking with friends in the north of Hong Kong. It was a rainy day but fortunately when we're on the hill top rain stopped and it's clear we can view the well developed China  from Hong Kong border.  Hong Kong is greenery everywhere though some have the instinct of high rises only.  We do have undulating mountains, sea and well accessible networks.
Almost two months away I will surely miss hiking and biking in Hong Kong but anticipating the reunion of friends with same passion in Ireland and UK where we will play with eco printing and wool felting. 

Thank you for my readers who follow my blog. I will still writing when I am on the road as I always said my life is "travel + teaching + playing - I color my life"
遠行⋯⋯我仍找緊機會騎單車、走山野,生活是調色盤 -自我調色、調適,自會絢爛!


  1. All very beautiful garments! I see you have such an athletic figure. Good for you for being into sports and health.

  2. Oooh, I just noticed you will be in Canada! Awesome. Is this your first time to give a workshop here? It is a bit far from where I am but who knows maybe one day you will give workshop closer to my home. The weather should be nice for you in September.

    1. It's my second time in Vancouver. Last time I missed to meet you. The workshop is in Comox Valley, Vancouver Island. My last days in Vancouver are end of Sept. Hope to see around the city.

    2. Hi, if you have time when in Vancouver proper, do send me email :-)

    3. Will do and let's see the chance.

  3. Wishing you a happy and successful tour!

    1. Wave my hands to you when I'm in England next week.
