TréLiz on my Virtual Sofa

Please welcome another lovely Vendor from this year's Swiss Wulle Festival - Lise from TréLiz

I had the pleasure of interviewing her and this is what she had to say:

What does the Handmade Movement mean to you?
As they say in their blog: it is a Celebration of Craftsmanship. It is a connection with history, with another area and knowledge... more importantly to keep it alive for the future

Who are you most inspired by and why?

I am inspired by a lot of things nature, a song, a book, a film, feelings. The people that inspire me are people that make me feel something: Dali, Frida Kahlo, Cole Porter, Jane Austen and many more..
If it resonates with me, sooner or later, something is going to happen.. a project, a colorway, a collaboration

What is the one Craft tool you couldn't be without?

My stove... If I did not have it, where would the magic happen? lol

Are their designers/artists who have inspired you along the way?

Of course! My fiber heroes are Suzy Brown (Wool Wench), Ashley Martineau. My dyeing hero is for sure Natalie Redding from Namaste farms that is awesome!
I am inspired by people trying new things and that does nt mean they do it the conventional way and I admire that. Just do it!

What are your inspirations right now?

I wanted for a long time to create knitting kits for my website and did not know how or where.. This summer I decided to contact a lot of designers that I like their work and collaborate together. The first kit is available as a pre-order via my website, and then we will have a KAL. And that will be the plan for all kits created: Pre-orders, time for me to dye and then a huge KAL.

Those taking part in the KAL and finishing before the date mentioned, will have the chance to win themselves the next kit in the colour of their choosing!

The first kit is named Cyclades, like the islands in the Aegean sea, and it will be available to purchase at the Swiss Wulle Festival on the 3-4 October in Zug.

If you were granted 3 wishes, what would you wish for to advance the Handmade Movement?

More recognition, more craftsman to share their art, and that people would feel the heart and soul of the makers in their pieces.
