From shadow to light

There is an unusual activity at the studio right now. Twelve weavers are here trying to learn Helena Hernmarck's weaving technique. During two weeks they learn from Helena Hernmarck and Alice Lund Textilier's weaver Ebba Bergström and try to make a small tapestry of their own in the loom. This year we had the theme "Tulips" so right now a lot of wonderful flowers are being created in the looms. If you are in the neighbourhood we will have an open house on Thursday (16.00-18.00) and hopefully by then several of the tapestries will be out of the loom. Here are some pictures of the creative chaos that is our studio at the moment.

There are both beginners and advanced students in the class, the beginners weave a picture in black and white while the more advanced students explore a picture in color.

The beginners start by making a sample weave before starting on weaving their tulip.

 We also make several excursions during the course, here is a picture from Wålstedts textile mill that we visited on Saturday.
