Through the work of the hand using textile materials and craft techniques, Ulrika aims to investigate how architecture can be given a textile embodiment, as an alternative to what architecture is generally considered to be. 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
Fiberspace is a gallery showcasing unique pieces and limited editions of fabulous fiber art and design.
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! Also, if you have an old (but clean and whole) rag rug lying around that you don't need anymore please drop it off at the gallery so it can lend some much-needed warmth to a new home.
Our mission is to collectively weave two rag rugs in 24 hours. The crowdweave will start on Thursday the 8th of December and end on Sunday the 11th of December. Opening hours are Thursday 12-20, Friday 12-18, Saturday and Sunday 12-17. Gingerbread biscuits and "glögg" will be served to all volunteers. Spread the word!Read more
Iaspis and the Craft Center are hosting a talk on curating craft. We're thrilled that Marcia has been invited to be part of the discussion panel. One of the questions we will try to answer is whether curators in a gallery or museum setting can create new spaces and contexts that are inclusive and give leeway for different strategies in crafts? Welcome to Iaspis on the 29th of November at 18.00!Read more

With her background of textile and architecture, Akane Moriyama works to create unique quality in space at the intersection of the two fields. Her work is often understated but full of poetic thought, and ranges from private commissions to art installations. Cubic Prism is her largest piece to date at 25m in length and was exhibited at the Goldsmith Hall at the University of Texas.Read more
