Dye and print


Magic might happen in the dyebath when you mix colours with eachother. I dye in every existing dyeing method: reactive, acid, vat dye and direct dye, depending on the material and what it is to be used for. I also do handprinted textiles for different use. To see examples of print for the stage, please look at Theatre – Patina.


2018 I went to Paris for a study visit to Opéra Comique, where they since 2012 have dyed some productions with natural dyes. This captured my interest: a new angle to the whole thing of dyeing costumes. I have been lucky enough to take two courses with the famous Michel Garcia in the subject. I do my own experiments in the workshop at Konstfack.
