Ida Isak Westerberg

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!! 💚

Jonas has a two-year high school education.

At Ricklundgården in Saxnäs, Jonas has made the final changes to a crime novel that will be published in October. There has also been time to think out characters and plots in Jonas’s next book, which he will write this winter.

“- Maybe some part of that story will take place in this area.”

• “- It has been fantastic to be here, such a nice place! The mountain environment, the calm and the nature provide peace of mind and fanatical conditions for creation.”

• We thank Jonas for the visit and wish him the best of luck with the new book!
