This weekend is the big birdhouse-day! The art-guerilia is had a creative family-get-together on Saturday where we´ll all make birdhouses. Sunday, we´ll take a walk in nature and hang them all up, inviting the birds to move in. This is my birdhouse. My Dad built it for me (Times are so busy!) and I decorated […]
I visited my friend Nina the other day. She´s a professional felt-maker, and has published several books on the subject. She makes incredible and colorful landscapes in the her felted work. Patterns and colors melting into each other. NinaFiltmaker is her web-site. I really like these loose neck-capes. Like a big necklace, but warm Yet […]
Earlier this week I went back to Tau to take down the exhibition that´s´´been there the past month. But not all the pictures are coming back home with me. Here are some of them. “You can´t see the forrest for the trees”, (ca 15×20+passepartou and frame cm), Acrylic paint on watercolor paper and oxidized brass. The lady […]
A new workshop at the textile culture course, and another technique I have never tried before. Nålebinding is an old thread-binding technique, which the vikings used. So this is one of the original techniques, long before crochet and knitting. Knitting, which is popular today, didn´t become a common knowledge/skill until the 17th century. This is what […]
One of the fun projects that will go throughout the year, is visiting a arts and crafts class at one of the local schools. It will only be a short visit in each of the 4 groups during the year, where I show and tell a bit about printing. I notice that I am used […]
The Family-life exhibition opened at Sunnmøre Museum in Ålesund September 14th. Tone Anda, the museum-curator, has made the most wonderful display! By adding tables filled with everyday things from the 50s and 60s, it´s a trip down memory-lane. It adds so much to the pictures, when they are placed into a whole of cultural history! […]
Task at hand: Make a bird-house. Decorate it. Be creative. The bird-house will be part of an art-project, but it will be placed in the woods and inhabited by real birds. Everyone in the art-gurilia-group is making one each. To be honest: I asked my Dad to build the birdhouse for me. He´s got more tools. […]
This has been my weekend: Unpacking a truckload (literary) of costumes and props for Pippi Longstocking. The show will premiere November 1st, and I´m helping out with the costumes. So this weekend, we´ve been trying on the rented costumes, trying to find something that fits for all the young actors.
Bremnes Seashore has built a new building for the technical department. We´ve used some of the old photographs from their archive to decorate the stairwell. So many great portraits here of people at work. They all seem to really like their workplace. And a couple of yummy salmon dishes decorate the meeting room.
The last in the National treasures-series is about buildings. Mind you, these are only a couple I´ve seen in the past weeks, there are tons more of interesting places and spaces. Halsnøy Convent is from way back in the 11th century, I think. None of the buildings have survived completely, but there are cellars. And […]« Previous Entries
