Every week is really quite exiting here at manos but this week even more so. I’m happy to invite twelve students from Konstfack, working in the fields of ceramics, glass, silver, wood and textile, to Pop-up Craft Shop, an event starting with a private view on Friday and continuing throughout the weekend.
The idea and organisation behind Pop-up Craft Shop comes from Sara Söderberg and I’m glad and proud that she asked me to host her first event. I love to share my space with creative and enterprising people and I’m really exited to see what they’ll be showing! Take a look at the event site to see who’ll be here.
Pop-up Craft Shop is pop-up shop with a mission to share and sell studio produced craft and design in a morphed shop and mini-exhibition experience. The project was started out of necessity because there are not enough options for creative makers to show and sell their work in Stockholm. To inspire a greater interest in studio produced work there needs to more and different types of opportunities to actually see and experience the local work being made.
The pop-up-craft shop will open with a private view on Friday October 10th 5-8 pm and will stay open Saturday-Sunday 11-12th October 11-5 pm.
