Wiehler Gobelin x Vladimir
“Embroidering Gobelin-Tapestries is as popular as ever”, as it says in the instructions. “And now to the real embroidery technique. The Gobelin-Stitch is stitched with four-ply twist. Each square on the pattern stands for doing two stitches next to each other across two threads of canvas above… When using Gobelin-Stitch, the twist on the back of the embroidery should be slightly slanting”.What the heck are we here at Vladimir 2022 talking about? Is tapestry art the next big thing in skateboarding? And what does it have to do with pheasants? Soon you will know, and you too will be able to sport a bit of the newest potential trend whose roots are deep here in South-Eastern Europe, especially former Yugoslavia.
Saturday night (24/9/22) we’re all in for a treat at La Resistance bar and cafe in Pula. Imagine, a bar directly across the street from the upper side of the coliseum in Pula, cozy seats on the sidewalk, a smooth atmosphere, normally you’d call that heaven. But even heaven can be improved upon.
A sizeable collection of Wiehler Gobelin needle-stitches, pristine condition, framed, a true marvel of the beauty of the times we live in.
The exhibition will be ongoing even after the festival but don’t miss it Saturday night as Patrik Wallner’s presentation will be in a connected space following a few drinks at the bar that evening. As Sir Elton John said, “Saturday night’s the night I like, want to get a belly full of beer” or something like that.
