This year went really fast and I first want to start by thanking you for reading my blog De reis naar Batik. This year I celebrated my 5 year anniversary of my blog and I wish for many more birthdays!
I had a wonderful Art year (see www.sabinebolk.nl); I had my first exhibitions abroad and went four times to an Island! Unfortunately not Indonesia, but it was so good to travel again. It gave me less time to blog, so I still have many stories to share. Planning to spend the next couple of months working on posts, so that you can read more about my adventures of 2014.
Looking forward to 2015. Starting something new, continuing my art career, working on my health and keep learning & sharing about Batik, Wax prints, (Folk) Art, Temporary Art and (colonial) History! So lets get this party started!
Looking forwards means also looking back, and looking back I really want to thank people for their support, love, ideas, inspiration and friendship!
Thank you, grandparents for making me fall in love with Indonesia and its culture!
Thank you Koen, adventure is out there!
Thank you Mom, for reading my posts and enjoying my bad English!
Thank you Chayet, for your wonderful blog Nothing But The Wax and all the support!
Thank you Marlisa, looking forward working together!
Thank you Batikmakers & Batiklovers for keeping this great tradition & textile alive!
Good bye 2014!
