This years´s summer course week has ended. Now we are having a glas of wine in the garden surrounded by Indigo and Busan “the cat” is checking that we are ok. A week full of material, talks, new people, patterns, indigo, shibori, cyanotopi and plants. Big thanks to all of you who participated, hope to see you soon again!

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.

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

Knitting workshop at Karin Öberg. Got so inspired! I just started my first knitting project in 34 years.

I´m preparing for the coming print workshop. Loaded with pattern inspiration from London.

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.

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.

In the process of transforming the stands for Stockholm Furniture Fair and Stockholms Auktionsverk from idea to reality. A lot of decisions about colours, shapes and materials.
