Welcome to my site! I work as an eco-designer, an artist, as a teacher and as a researcher, and creating, or ARTING as I prefer, makes me happy! This is both a portfolio of things I´ve made and a blog meant to inspire.

write an opera!

By spotogspindel | October 22, 2014

Write an opera in 4 weeks! Based on the fantasy-book “The Shamer´s daughter”, the teacher-students at HSH in arts and craft and in music  are working together in this project. The process is quick, but thorough. Lots of things going on at all times. We are 3 teachers, guiding the 40 students through the creative process.


The first week was about general information and creative ideas. We´re already in the second week, and this week it´s time to get to work! My 8 arts and crafts students are in charge of costumes, set, props, makeup, poster and program. Above Leif Kristian is taking measurements for the costumes.


And Signe is efficiently cutting styrofoam into blocks to use in part of the set. The story is set in a parallel universe, which strongly resembles our middle ages, with big stone-castles, dungeons and dragons! So obviously we need to make at least part of the stone-castle. Below Victoria, Lene and Signe are learning tricks of the trade in making a big, sturdy and life-like castle-look-alike!
