Stitching stories together


Too often, special events pass by without a celebration. And when there is celebration, we can have the feeling that it was impersonal. By working together on a work of art, it allows us to take stock of the moment, to contemplate its meaning and to give it a place in your mind and soul. A nice activity to mark a special moment is to make a textile piece together. My role in this process is to I accompany you in your creativity by offering ideas and techniques. Together we decide on the concept, and from there, either I complete the work, or I help you create your own rendering of the concept.


These pictures show a participative project where I accompanied a couple in the making of a double textile piece (in mirror) a few days before their ceremony right on the spot where they were going to be married, with plants of that same spot.



On her bachelorette’s women circle I asked the future bride’s friends to stitch a few abstract


intentions on her piece adding some colors, stones, shells,..

The textile pieces were hung on an arch during the ritual and are now kept as a memory of these beautiful moments.





Weaving stories together

During birth visit or for instance a bachelor ritual, every participant weaves some rows with an intention. Celebr’arte takes care of the material, the manual and the finishing touch. The result is a mural full of intentions and witness vibes of the ritual.

This can be done during women or men circles, bachelor rituals, weddings, birth visits or rituals ,… When we accompany friends or family through these rituals, the vibes and energy we feel are often ‘lost’ in the moment.

Taking a moment to intentionally collaborate on a piece, allows us to literally and figuratively weave intentions, energies and wishes into a piece of art.

Each guest weaves a few rows of thread or natural material creating a special and unique souvenir of the ritual  that will shine with the wishes and intentions put in it by the weavers.

This collective piece of art will be a special souvenir of the ritual itself and will shine the wishes and intentions put in it by the weavers.
