Skånsk konstvävnad

Finally, some pictures from the course I attended in the end of June – on folk weaving of Skåne, southern county of Sweden (which I happened to live in). With Gunvor Johansson as a teacher, the main authority on the subject, she has been reconstructing old weaving patterns and making them available, as with rölakan (local variant of kelim) patterns here.

the warp is 12/3 or 16/3 linen, weft is wool.

a little sample with four different techniques from halvkrabba, dukagång, krabbasnår and rölakan (as the stripes follow from top to bottom):

and a little sample of trensaflossa

the first four are woven with wrong side up:

and one have to use a mirror to check if the pattern is coming out right:

Gunvor had piles of old and new (woven by herself) weavings

and piles of illustrated albums to get inspired by

our collective achievements
