2011/05/13 Many things going on

So many exciting projects that are spinning around me these days, like this one. These are handmade mittens and hangers made by three students from HDK and Steneby which will be on the market that I project leed for KHVC. The market, called UPMARKET is taking place 19-20-21 August, this summer. A crafts market held in Trädgårdsföreningen parallel with Gothenburg Culture Festival. So, If you happen to be near Gothenburg these days you should come and visit!

A good meeting today with Klara Bothén (the mittens), Anna Piehl and Malin Wallin (the hangers) and Maria, a journalist, from the magazine Hemslöjd, see Maria’s nice blog here.

I’ve waited so long for someone to make hangers with faces again. Malin and Anna’s wooden ones are even more nice than the plastic ones we had at home when I was a kid. And the mittens, like icecreams – yummie. Buy Klara’s mittens here!

    I’m also wondering if there’s a way to order the mittens? I looked at the sites you link to, but the English/Swedish barrier makes life complicated :-)
