A textile artist’s wanderings

Hello, my name is Tineke Schonck, I am a textile artist mainly working with wool. I am living in the Netherlands, with my husband and daughter of 16, and with our ever-curious dog Yente.


In this blog, I want to share my process as an artist, with all the uncertainties and pitfalls I will meet. To me, the process is more important than the final outcome. At the same time, the process is not what people see when they go out looking at pieces of art. I have nothing to hide. On the contrary, I think that artists can profit from looking at each other’s world and craftmanship.
My workshop is in the backyard. At the moment, it is still fully cleaned up because we recently had an art route in our village, where people could take a look in the artist’s workshops. I will post a photo of my workshop when it is more representative as to its neatness. For now, the outside will do.
