The main focus of the programme is on artistic expression based on the knowledge that derives from the eye and the hand, with basis in textile materials, techniques and processes, making it unique in the Nordic region. The programme encompasses many different approaches to textiles covering anything from tradition and craft, materials, origin, social and cultural methods; to the question of gender. A foundation in the history of textile art is interwoven with the issues of the present, and changes our linear concept of time into a room where the multi-lingual qualities that we can experience in art are stressed by the diversity by of the programme.
