Textile designers Helle Gråbæk and Maria Kirk Mikkelsen has done a workshop saluting the sketch.
We salute the sketch and that which is unfinished. The incomplete that arouses curiosity and opens for opportunities. Raw edges, the presence of humans and time. We nurture the experimental. A process for the unknown, a manifestation of rapid thinking and the spontaneous quest for the sublime.
We love colour and texture. Out with all the rules and the opinions of others and in with spots of colour. Bring on the distortion. Our textile training has taught us a love of pattern. Anni Albers and Gunta Stolzl. Our history, our passion. Vertical, horizontal, organic, geometric, contextual and contrasting.
