Sofie Karlsson

Proudly presents, Sofie Karlsson, born 1990 in Halmstad. Lives and works today in Gothenburg.

Sofie has a bachelor’s degree from HDK-Valand, University of Gothenburg in Textile Art from 2019. Previous educations from Gamleby, Löftadalen and Östra Grevie folk high schools, all with different textile specializations in arts, crafts, pattern construction and design.

– My artistic work revolves around textile fibers and materials where I use the different properties of the fibers to create shape, structure and volume. I work mainly with hand weaving and various knots and weaving techniques. During my stay in Saxnäs, I have focused on working freely and pleasurable, it has been a very rewarding and creative time”.

Sofie says that she is very happy to have been selected as a scholarship holder from Art in Halland and had the opportunity to come to Ricklundgården this September and experience the magical mountain world in autumn colors.

The change of environment, breaking routines and patterns has been important in gaining new perspectives on my work. After a corona year, the trip to Saxnäs has been of great importance, both through magnificent nature experiences and through the inspiring encounter with Emma Ricklund’s textile world and life, says Sofie. ”

I asked Sofie if she had any dreams about her artistry and the answer I got was:

“- I look forward to new trips, exciting collaborations and projects with the hope of visiting Ricklundgården again in the future.”

We say thank you to Sofie who in so many more ways than just her fantastic artistry has enriched our existence at Ricklundgården💚

Ett stort tack till alla som besökte oss i lördagskväll, många nyfikna människor från när och fjärran och extra kul med alla Kultsjödalsbor som hälsade på! Det värmer våra hjärtan att huset fylls av barn, barnbarn, mammor och pappor och en och annan mormor, morfar eller farmor. Vi är så glada att kvällen fick bli ett minne som vi kan dela med många, konst och kultur är ju trots allt verkligen för alla♥️

Introducing children to artists and art and artists to children.

Today we had the pleasure of having 3 classes from Saxnäs school visiting us. Talk, look, discover, see, feel and pitter-patter up stairs. For many children, Ricklundgården is like a labyrinth that just has to be discovered!
