Her ambition is to investigate how the characteristics often associated with textiles, such as narrative storytelling, culture-bearing and tactility can contribute new insights. Can architecture be textile? Can textile be architecture?Read more

Carbon Craft was Carl Cyrén's masters degree project from Konstfack. It is an experimental design project where Carl has relocated carbon fiber from the world of super cars and sports equipment to the world of crafts. His focus has been on combining glassblowing and knitting, but since he is not a craftsman himself, he initially collaborated with the glass artist Reino Björk, Smart Textiles in Borås and The Glass Factory in Emmaboda. For his exhibition at Fiberspace, Carl is continuing to expand the project, producing completely new pieces hand blown in Stockholm.Read more

With Christmas around the corner and the harsh Swedish winter upon us, we would make someone's new-home-far-away-from-home a little cozier. And what could be cozier than the quintessential Swedish rag rug. We're setting up a loom in the gallery so we can weave a rag rug or two for some newcomers in need. But we need your help! So please come by and weave a few rows - no previous experience required. Remake Stockholm Stadsmission has generously donated a pile of rugs so all we need is people-power!Read more

Welcome to Iaspis on the 29th of November at 18.00!Read more
