Such a perfect day. We made a kite and it won first price for it´s beauty and also flied all day high in the sky.

Final days at Capella. We are working with the summer exhibition. I’m also taking done the interior design and the set up for the exhibition store. Just trying to be in the present during this wonderful time.

Nyanser av grått. Capellagårdens trädgårdsbutik öppnar till påsk, nymålad! Jag har gjort färgsättningen tillsammans med målarna Rebecka och Alex. Vi har endast använt linoljefärger från Allbäcks, som ger rätt matthet och liv. Planerar nu för det fortsatta arbetet med utställningsbutiken.

Shades of grey. Capellagardens garden shop opens until Easter, newly painted! I have made the color scheme together with the painters Rebecka and Alex. We have used linseed colors from Allbäcks, which provide the right math and life. Now planning for the continued work with the exhibition shop.

Nu är det hög tid att söka till Capellagårdens sommarkurser. Jag håller kursen “Mönstra med färg” den 24;e till 30;e juni. Där du har möjlighet att pröva olika textila tekniker för att göra mönster med shibori, stämpeltryck, cyanotopi, målning m.m.

Now it´s time to apply for the summer courses at Capellagården. I will hold an indigo and pattern course 24th to 30th of June. “Mönstra med färg”. Indigo dyeing with shibori techniques, stamp printing, print with open screens, painting with dyes and cyanotopi are some of the techniques that we work with to create patterns. Check out at www.capellagarden.se

From yesterdays Indigo workshop at Capellagården. It´s magic every time to indigo dye in the garden in-between the textile and ceramic workshops.

We are in the middle of the process of putting everything together, recipes, texts, photos, illustrations, story lines, portraits. We are also testing papers, fonts, cooking, arguing and recharging batteries. It´s really rewarding, scary, fun and soon it´s not just our little baby anymore…

The summer course program is now up and running. ‘Mönstra med färg’ including Indigo and shibori and much more will be one of them. Pls. see www.capellagarden.se for more information.

Sommarkursprogrammet för 2017 ligger nu uppe på Capellagårdens hemsida. Min kurs *Mönstra med färg' är en av dem. Indigo, shibori och olika sätt att skapa mönster. Se www.capellagarden.se för mer information.

Last week I started a new printing workshop. We worked with geometrical shapes and action painting patterns. And also got time to update our workshop with new table top covers. Assignment ´For no use´ to be presented next week.

Today ‘Open Capella’ invited a group of women from Syria to join in the indigo dying workshop.

Last weekend for our exhibition “Colleagues”. Next week we will start building the Summer exhibitions with students from Capellagården. Vernissage 27th of May.

Upcomming exhibtion. Vernissage 14.00 Saturday 30th of April at Capellagarden.

From yesterdays photoshoot. We played in Nordings studio. Such a great place with creative atmosphere. Ayakos wool shawl with natural dyed pale colors will be on the cover to a magasin next to you.

Today we are meeting all together, illustrator, author, photographer, design for the “Capella cook book”.

Preparing an Natural Indigo vat and researching for new projects. Indigo in my dreams… The working shirt belongs to Miho.

One of the best parts of working at Capella is that everyday is different. Starting with being intervjued and then carried a lot of garbage as well as collecting and curating beautiful pieces of handicraft. Visit our stand in Greenroom at Stockholm Furniture Fair or at Auktionsverket.

Ännu en kreativ Indigohelg. Tack alla medverkande för en lyckad workshop.
Another creative Indigo weekend. A big thanks to all participants for a wonderful workshop.
