Colours of nature! In the middle of the process of dyeing all the shirts that the test pilots has sent us for “The shirt project”. Piece by piece a weave of stories, shapes and shades appears. Mordanting, piece dye and prepare all the dye pigments is time consuming but also very fulfilling. If you are interested to grow, collect or forage different peals or plants pls. send an email.

From last week´s workshop. Final assignment “The art of deconstructing a book”. The students deconstructed a pile of books and made three different pieces out of them; Something wearable, A mobile and A book. So much creativity and focus from the in the studio and so many beautiful pieces of art.

Made some tryouts today together with Sara and Annie. Preparing for the summer course at Capellagården in July. Also trying to get back in a creative flow “post book” and a lot of deadlines. Working with light sensitive fluid to create patterns with UV light in a technique called Cyanotopi.
