The original idea was to show appreciation for the time, love and effort women throughout the ages have invested into transforming a house into a home, much via textiles. The contribution to society and world history has often been ignored, because it was in different fields. They took care of the “small world”. While the […]
The kids from Sveio Art-school had a creative filed-trip to Leirvik to make art! Det er kunst directly translates to it is art. Their teacher was inspired by the upcoming embroidery-exhibition, and taught the kids to embroider cross-stitch directly onto the park-bench-chairs. And the result is SO cool! The kids are from 8 to 16 […]
Making an art-exhibition is a pretty big job. The main part of it certainly being the making-process. But there are other, important parts as well. Like curating it, choosing which pieces to include and which to leave out, and where everything goes. (Especially when working with your own art when you have feelings connected to […]
We´ve been lied to. In School. For generations. We are all sure we know what the world looks like. We´ve seen it so many times. And then it turns out… it´s a lie. The proportions are completely contorted. THIS is much closer to the truth. Why is it so? That we´re introduced the the other […]
Another hipster done. I found this 60s suspender-briefs at a flee-market years ago, and they´ve been lying around just waiting for me to put them to use. They are a bit to big for the mannequin, but hopefully you can see them all right.
Time to finish the little Eco-Ninja-costume! After a few alterings, this is what it will look like. It´s been so interesting to be a part of this process, an active part, contributing with both my knowledge of textile and costumes, but also about the sustainability of textiles. And my teaching-experience comes in handy too. You gotta […]
How to make your very own hipster-knicker: You take one pair of vintage suspender-knickers from the late 60s. You find a couple of portrait-photos of some cool hipsters, and draw them onto the water-souble-fabric. Sew. A lot. Freestyle machine embroidery. In a slightly darker color than the vintage fabric. After the algaenat is gone, you´re left […]
How fun is this?! A go-kart-car was delivered on my doorstep yesterday, to be embellished with embroidery! All for the exhibition, and commissioned by the museum. Hopefully it will be an eye-catcher at the entrance. But before that, I intend to have a lot of fun making it! The car itself is made by Paul […]
The new net is done, ready for mermaid-fishing. Lots of gold, powder-pinks and amber.
Finding the perfect shades to attract a mermaid… Sewing them down, 4 cm apart, on the water-soluble fiber… And sewing some more… And some more… Hopefully I´ll finish tomorrow, adding all the seams of gold on the net. Three seams for every piece of fabric, for over 3 meters. It´s taking it´s time. So I […]« Previous Entries
