Saturday I’m going to attend a workshop on recycling wool with Katarina Brieditis, one of the writers of the book “Do redo – the art of butchering a sweater”.
Anne Marie Helger, actress and political provocateur, known for her satirical comments, crazy humour and extraordinary dresses opened the exhibition.
It was a very inspiring afternoon. Now I really look forward for the workshop!
At her small woollen mill she produces tweed and woollen duvets basically made out of recycled wool. Here she has discovered and studied the hidden treasures of the storage bins containing all sorts of worn out – and carefully repaired – sweaters, socks and other wool ware. Studying these piles of knitted rags has given her a comprehensive knowledge about traditional knitting patterns and cultural history
