Land art

Saturday, April 29th, 2017

For the first time in almost exactly ten years, I am back at Bømlo Folk High School teaching. This time only for a day. A creative Saturday! Following an introduction to land-art and Andy Goldsworthy, the students split up into groups and utilized the entire area around the school. Two hours later we all went for […]

From Da Vinci´s first sketch of a flying-machine… … to a newer satelite orbiting earth. We´ve come a long way! Several models are decorating the hallways at ESA ESTEC´s large facility. Over 2000 people work at this site alone. Below is SMART-1 On December 13th, the premiere of Moon Village will take place all over the world. […]

Kids embroidery workshop

Saturday, March 4th, 2017

The art group had a couple of hours of children´s embroidery workshop today. A good handful of kids showed up and got their try at sewing. This girl had an elaborate story of the treasure map she was embroidering. There were keys hidden in the map. Made of lava and water and gold. She sounded […]

The black laced choker

Monday, February 27th, 2017

For the freestyle machine embroidery workshop jewelry, I wanted to make a couple of examples. This is one of them. I first made an outer line of a lace-choker. I then started to fill it. By simply sewing a geometric pattern of little “fans”, I filled the space between the two lines more or less […]

Freestyling workshop

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017

Sunday I had a great gang of people participating in my freestyle machine-embroidered jewelry workshop. Placed inside the Salhus Trikotasjemuseum in Salhus, outside of Bergen, in the middle of their embroidery-exhibition. At first, as always, it´s a challenge to figure out the coordination of the rhythm of pedal-speed and movement-speed of the fabric itself. But […]

sewing and teaching

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016

I´ve been busy the past days teaching and sewing. For Peter Pan I´m working on pirate-costumes and lost kids-costumes. This is a fencing-vest for one of the pirate. Made from raw silk, layered with a thick cotton-padding fabric and an un-bleached layer of cotton-calico. I´ve mentioned the 4 Elements-project before. I made a design for an Enthusiast-costume […]

Soka Higashi koko

Another of the incredible experiences here in Japan, is the main reason for my travel: the Global Science Opera eco-scenography workshop. I have a class of 20 students, and in just 3 days, we will make a scene that will be incorporated into the opera. This morning when I arrived, this sign was waiting for […]

embroidery and language

Saturday, October 1st, 2016

The first embroidery-workshop took place at the museum this week. Although it was more of a dialect-lecture than an embroidery-workshop. One of my art-pieces in the exhibition is a word-cloud, filled with dialect words and expressions. Inspired by this, we launched this workshop where you could embroider your own favorite word(s), while listening to professor […]
