Fiberspace is a gallery showcasing unique pieces and limited editions of fabulous fiber art and design.
Hand-sewn process book with pictures from the Intertradition project. Includes one pattern repeat from the inter-traditional fabric and the process chart poster. Limited edition of 38 books per colour.
Inspired by urban landscapes seen from the air, these framed compositions show the irregular repetition of our man-made patterns in nature. Each composition is individually crafted using sheets of layered paper and intricate cutwork and stitching. The paper is handmade by Deepa Panchamia at the Paper House in Fiskars Village, Finland, using cotton mixed with bits of nature.
Lisa Juntunen Roos and Shogo Hirata talk about their intercultural collaboration as well as the challenges of preserving and developing artisan traditions, together with Kyozo Shimogawa, third generation weaving master of the small weaving mill in Kurume, Japan. The talk will be lead by Fiberspace's director, Marcia Harvey Isaksson. Limited number of spots so book yours now HERE!Read more
