RSVP and follow updates — (FB event)

Join textile artist and weaver, Astrid Skibsted, for a hands-on workshop and artist talk as part of her collaborative exhibition Open Lines.

In this process-led workshop, participants will study compositions of yarn and material to experiment with new colour combinations and challenge our perception of colour. You’ll create colourful winding samples to inspire your future knitting, weaving or textile projects or simply be playful small works of art. 

The program will consist of:

  • An inspirational talk on colour in textiles

  • A collaborative group colour experiment 

  • Creating your individual winding samples

Yarns have a deep and complex way of reflecting colour and light. We work with various inspiration materials and discuss how we can translate classical colour theory into yarn and textile materials.

This class is suitable for adults of all skills levels - no experience with textiles needed. All materials will be provided, but you are welcome to bring scraps and leftover yarn in any colour or material to share and use. Tea and coffee will be provided.

Tickets are 50kr per person, only 10 places available so secure your place here.

Astrid Skibsted is a textile artist and weaver, working from her studio in central Aarhus. Her creative process investigates how colours behave and interact in textiles and fibres. Her primary techniques are minimalist plain weave structures and windings of yarn in bold colour sequences.

Her work visually expresses the time invested in the making of each piece. Every thread is traceable. Following each line, one thread at a time, gives a sense of calm and engaged stillness.
