Welcome to Anita Nilsdotter's exhibition "You take what you have"!

Anita writes as follows: "Being born and raised in Borås with its textile and clothing industry, which flourished during the 50s and 60s, made the choice of education easy.

First to fashion director at the Textile Institute and then as a hand weaver at Borås Väfskola.

I have worked with textiles all my working life. First as a director at one of the many companies that provided the mail order companies with women's clothing, then as a teaching assistant at Väfskolan and lastly I was a weaving teacher at Fristads folkhögskola for nineteen years. A wonderful time.

Now I enjoy being able to devote myself to weaving, sewing and embroidery, to be able to experiment, test new materials, techniques, models and areas of use.

There are almost no restrictions and the textile needs of the future await products for benefit and pleasure.

I like to weave utility textiles,such as rugs, stretches, bags and clothing fabrics. But also wall ornaments where my woven pictures have become something of a specialty.

I have called this exhibition "You take what you have".

Over the years, I have collected a lot of yarns and fabrics. and as part of today's environmental thinking, I challenge myself to use what I already have. "

Saturday the 9th of October at 10 -14 you are welcome to the opening as Anita is of course on site!

The exhibition runs until 20 November.
