Astrid Åkerström

My childhood was full of my mothers many textile projects. She inspired me a lot and thought me the grounds in sewing, knitting, crochet and broidery.

I use several techniques in my work. Patchwork, broidery and applique. Sometimes I use paint. Most of the cloth, is cloth that has been wasted. That in combination with sewing everything by hand, the concept "Slow Art" seems to fit my way of working. Feeling the material in my hands is a very important part of creating, for me.

Making my textiles more and more tactile is a goal I have.
