"Efter Regattan"

Another project at the studio is a tapestry called "Efter Regattan" (After the regatta) composed by Olle Nyman in the 1980s. The original tapestry has unfortunatly been destroyed and now we've gotten the opportunity to weave a new one. On the top one can se what the sketch looks like and down below how the different shapes grow in the loom.

Sätergläntan Spring Exhibition

Sätergläntan, a craft school in Dalarna, had their spring exhibition a couple of weeks ago which was a very pleasant event. I had such a nice time that I forgot to take pictures, that's why their has been no report on the blog. But now I saw that Sätergläntan had two slideshows of pictures on their website. So if you are interested in seeing what the students have been up to this year look here, and here.

A weekend of nature and embroidery

A couple of weeks ago I had a very pleasant weekend in Linköping where I attended a "broderisymposium" - a weekend full with embroidery in different ways. This was the second time I went to Linköping on an event like this and it is always such a pleasure and very well organized by Hemslöjden i Östergötland. I had some time before the event started on Friday so I went to Östergötlands Länsmuseum and saw two good exhibitions, one about haute couture from Paris and the other a graduation exhibition from "Slöjd, hantverk och formgivning" at Linköpings University.

During the weekend there was an extensive program of lectures, workshops and excursions - everything in the atmosphere of nature and embroidery. I had a workshop in crosstich with Frida Berntsson.
