Youth Nordic Craft Workshop: Decorated Pockets with Kristina Hagander

Join guest artist Kristina Hagander from Sweden to explore the colors and techniques of traditional textiles in this special class. Kristina will work with students (ages 13-17) to make a small felt pocket inspired by Swedish traditional folk dress. Choose your own colors and needle felt a design before finishing up the edges with beautiful woven ribbons. Your pocket will make a sturdy pouch or sweet purse, perfect for keeping small treasures. 

Kristina Hagander is an elementary school “soft slöjd” (textile) instructor in Österlen, in Southern Sweden. Her curriculum teaches weaving, embroidery, knitting, crochet and pattern writing along with language and problem solving skills. She has been an artist in residence at Sjölunden, the Swedish language summer camp at the Concordia Language Villages in 2017 and 2018.
