my life at the moment

I thought that I would show you around the place were I spend my life at them moment. I study Textil och modedesign (Textile and fashion design) at Skara Lärcentrum, It is a one year long after gymnasium (high school) education that includes loom weaving and pattern making for weaving in a loom, sewing and pattern making, material knowledge and art and sketching.

My class consists of 22 people divided into two groups and the year is divided into four parts that alternate between sewing and weaving.
In sewing you make a skirt, shirt, pants, jacket, something made of jersey and one free choice assignment. In weaving it is more divided into different materials and weaving techniques. Something rough in linen, something thin in linen, something in wool, something for the floor, something with many shafts and treadles and something optional.

Lets take the tour of our premises.

We start out in the main weaving room, here we have looms and tables, this is also were we have the pattern making for the loom and were we pile all our papers and yarns ;)

we have two rooms for weaving the main room and the big room, but in between we have our computer room/yarn storage. I love all the yarn in the cabinets, color coded and it looks like candy, it makes me truly happy.

Then we have the big weaving room, it is my favorite room to sit in, I usually end up in the looms in the middle of the room.

Now we are going over to the sewing department, say hello to the cutting room, the tables are adjustable and the cabinets around them is stacked with high quality fabrics that is cheap, the perfect match.

  1. Wow, I’m jealous, this is a beautiful space for weaving- so neat, clean, and organized. If only my school’s department looked like this. You’re very lucky to have such an extensive space.
