Exhibition: Barbro Lomakka

If you are in Stockholm I can highly recommend a visit to Barbro Lomakka's exhibition at Almgrens silk mill. Barbro Lomakka works with an interesting encounter between felted wool and handweaving where the felt is used as inlays in a woven structure. She also explores the textile medium's advantages as sound absorbents, making structures that creates a comfortable environment.

Happy New Year 2015!

Happy New Year to all weavers and textile art lovers out there!

This year I had a very relaxing start to the year, I spent Christmas in New York and two weeks in Costa Rica enjoying the sun and beach. But now I am back with new energy to start what I am sure to be an exciting year. We are starting our weaving year with a pall (bårtäcke) for a church close to the studio. More pictures about that soon!

Another exciting thing for this year is another exhibition! This summer Alice Lund Textilier will be part of an large exhibition about contemporary textile art at Meken, an art venue in Smedjebacken in Dalarna. (And there might be other opportunities as well to see Alice Lund Textilier's work during the year but more on that later on...)

Here is a snapshot from Costa Rica. It is a beach towel in cotton I wove several years ago inspired by the Kenyan "Kikoys" which are similar in size and quality. It has come to very good use on the beach and unlike an ordinary towel it is quite easy to pack and dries up quickly.

Congratulations Ebba!

Congratulations to Alice Lund Textilier's weaver Ebba Bergstrom who has won Borlänge Municipality's Culture Prize 2014! This year Borlänge has raised awareness of hand-weaving by giving the prize to three weavers active in the community. We are so proud of Ebba and happy that the municipality understand the importance of this often tacit knowledge. Here is an article about this year's prize.
