Thank you everyone that came and took part of “The shirt project”. Overwhelmed by the response. Many important thoughts and questions about sustainability, natural dyeing, fibers -just as we wished for! Information about upcoming workshops and next exhibition will soon be sent to all our testpilots, stay tuned!

Parts of “The shirt project” will be exhibited in Norrlängan at Capellagården during the Harvest feast, Sept. 26-29. Vernissage Sept. 26, at 3 pm.
We will be there, so come and talk with us about the project and sustainable textiles or natural dyes. Welcome!

“The shirt project” This project aims to highlight the advantages and possibilities in giving your garments a second life by using existing fibers and garments and overdye them with natural pigments. We have start to take action by sharing knowledge and we believe that we actually make a difference. All steps toward a more conscious way of using our resources are welcomed! The project will be exhibited in end of Sept 2019 and more information about following workshops will soon be sent to our first test pilots.

From last evening´s photo shoot at Alvaret. Soon an upcoming exhibition and a series of workshops! The shirt project continues to develop and create an exchange of knowledge as well as encounters with different skilled people. We take action for a more sustainable way of consume by reuse and work with natural textile fibers and pigments.

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.

We are making plans, foraging plants and talk a lot with different people about sustainable ways of making textiles. Just what I wished for!

”The shirt project” – part I

An interactive art project that aims to find and explore sustainable textile processes.
Do you want to contribute and be a part of the solution? You can participate as a test pilot in the project by sending or handling over a white shirt with instructions that will be delivered to you by mail. We would love if you and your shirt have a history together. The condition of the shirt doesn´t matter but the shirt must be washed. We will welcome white shirts in need for some love and give them a second life. And you will get your shirt back in a new colour!

The project is open to all gender and shirts in all different shapes as long as it´s made out of nature materials and in a white shade. We will start collecting from today and until May 30.
Handle the shirt over directly to Sara or Linda or send according to instructions. No extra costs will be added except from shipping.

”The shirt project” – del I

Ett interaktivt konstprojekt som syftar till att hitta och utforska hållbara processer för textil.
Vill du medverka till att vara en del av lösningen? Du kan delta som testpilot i projektet genom att skicka eller lämna en vit skjorta med instruktioner som skickas via mail. Vi vill gärna att du och skjortan har en historia och skicket spelar ingen roll bara skjortan är tvättad. Vi samlar in vita skjortor som är i behov av lite kärlek och ger dem ett andra liv. Du kommer att få tillbaka din skjorta i en ny färg!

Projektet är öppet för alla människor, skjortor i alla former så länge den är gjord i naturmaterial och är i en vit nyans. Insamlingen börjar idag och pågår t.o.m. 30 maj.
Lämna skjortan direkt till Sara eller Linda eller skicka enl. instruktioner. Inga ytterligare kostnader tillkommer mer än frakt för dig som skickar.
