A workshop with Lotta Jansdotter

Here's more pictures from the Afar magazine article. Our days will be spent exploring the island, sketching and learning how to translate nature into patterns. Then we'll transfer our designs onto paper and fabric using 3 different printing techniques. There will be a field trip to a local artisan's studio and a visit to Mariehamn (Åland's capital). And plenty of time to hike, swim, kayak or take a sauna since we are looking at 18 hours of daylight at this time of year. Most of the food is made onsite or harvested from the island; homemade bread, fresh veggies and freshly caught fish!
The Åland archipelago is a 6 hour ferry ride from Stockholm and actually belongs to Finland but people speak mostly Swedish, which is fine with me since I am fluent in both Finnish and Swedish, NOT!
