It has been almost a year since I first met Ellie & Emma – Hastudia girls. Meanwhile they followed their dream, opened their own place, a kind of workshop where you can come and make anything you want, if didn't have the tools to do it at home. In addition, they have a really busy schedule of all kind of workshops such as: making cutting boards from reclaimed wood, upcycled old pallets to shelves, sewing wallets from inner tubes and more.
Last week I dropped by somewhere between the kid's dinner time and a night's drink. It was a low-tech silk screening workshop, where I met Katya, Suzanne, Shane, Emma and Maayan Gutfeld – textile designer and the instructor. I heard a lot of "wow" that night in this workshop, the kind you hear when you see magic and finally discover how it has been done.
If you are in the neighborhood, you probably a permanent residency there, and if you are a tourist planning to come to Tel Aviv, join their face book page and stay tuned. (There is a lot of English being spoken there because the girls are both Canadian, so you can feel at home).
The upcycled dryer is not finished yet, please be calm and stay tuned.
