Proudly presenting, Ida Isak Westerberg, from Korsträsk, Älvsbyn.
•Ida Isak has a degree in hand weaving and art sewing from Handarbetets vänner.
•During the time at Ricklundgården, Ida Isak has been looking for different sides in herself;
“- Sides I haven’t found before, in history, in the ground, in the views and the body. I’ve tried techniques I haven’t used, sun-dyed with plants from specific places and woven with things I found. I have explored new expressions, what rests and what can emerge when I give it time and space.”
•When asked how her experience was here at Ricklundgården, the answer was;
“- It has been an important time. I have learned a lot about myself and those who came before me. Challenged in new color themes and given time to discover and feel. The environment and the people in the area were very welcoming and I felt at home straight away. I am very grateful for the opportunity to have spent July in Saxnäs – the world’s luxury!”
•We are very happy and grateful for the time that Ida Isak has been here and we have enjoyed her presence and company!! 💚
