An inter-regional project between Venø Gård KUNST, Cultural Paths and Rovaniemi Heritage Museum Finland, inspired from the traditional clothing and textiles collection the museum holds. A reinterpretation of traditional working garments, knitted patterns and the nordic landscape
Exploring the potential for circular design, applied arts and digital technologies, the collaboration has developed a heartfelt working process between fashion designer Julia Kröner Venø, local wool producer Inger Falkevik from Nordfjordull, local knitters and creative practitioners.
The project aims to reflect the value of rural culture, with its roots in applied crafts, and ethical maker-ship culminating in an exhibition to coincide with our next Symposium Merging - Converging.
Materials will include conceptualization of ideas, textile samples, designs, moodboards, drawings, and a garment prototype.
