Hönsestrik a lovestory


Björn Hellström and I have in joint effort (ENGMAN HELLSTRÖM) taken photos for Anna Bauer's new book about knitting - "Hönsestrik a lovestory".

"Hønsestrik - a Danish knitting style from the 70’s, which literally translates into “Chicken Knit”. Hønsestrik is done with bright colours on a double pointed needle, so no purling is needed. The technique seems to have found inspiration in fair isle patterns, but with the Hønsestrik patterns resembling every day objects, animals and people to a greater extent. But besides the very bright colours and naive patterns (which I think look adorable on kids, maybe not so much on grown men with beards…) Hønsestrik is really all about making a political statement and challenging the norms of society at the time." - Knitted Cakes

Let me introduce - Silver

He's a 10 month old rescue dog from Russia, Yakutsk. The first picture is from when we got him
and was on our way home and the second from his first gallery visit :-)

Berlin by summer

We went to Berlin for a lovely week, wishing it was longer. We did a lot of walking, even though it was quite hot, and it was a pleasure to look at the "step counter" before going to bed in the early mornings. Of course we met Sandra and Johan and celebrated midsummer the proper way.

I am thinking a bit about organizing a workshop in Berlin, that would be so nice! Let me know if you are interested to take a workshop with me, in Berlin or Gothenburg - email me and I'll add you to a list :-) (camilla at camillaengman dot com)

Workshop

I held a workshop through Ace Camps Travel. The workshop was a three day workshop and held at Konstepidemin in Gothenburg, Sweden, the area where I have my studio. We worked with painted paper to make collage, to do something small much bigger using overhead/projector/printer, and then we used it all to make a zine (fanzine). Of course we visited my studio and I showed some of my work. We also took a tour around Konstepidemin and visited the gallery and another artists studio. In the evenings we all went out to eat and to talk about nothing special. I'm always a bit nervous before it all starts but then it is so much fun! And when the time comes to say good bye I'd like them to stay a week longer. If you are interested to take a workshop with me - email me and I'll add you to a list :-) (camilla at camillaengman dot com) I'd love to meet you!
