The prop makers

Imagne a place where you can work with fairy tales. Where you can get the task to create a table loaded with colorful pastries, cakes, cookies and candy, all in textile. And all from your own imagination. Another day the task can be to make animal masks to a nursery school, or to fix a shark and fill it with a textile brain, heart and other guts.

I visited a place like that yesterday, Arbetsgruppen Rekvisita here in Gotheburg. A place where you work with props simply. But also a place where you are allowed to fail, work in your own pace and to have fun.

A whole bunch of creative, and very talented ladies (no guys this day) are working daily in a workshop kind of, making desirable treasures. I was invited to peep, lucky me. AND, I bought something wonderful. That ‘thing’ I will show you further on cause I’m eager to present it in a way that it deserves.

I love Peggy and Susilou.
