On The Bridge – Textile And Wood

Exhibition 1.- 19.7.2015



There are four women in our group. We are all arts and crafts teachers and workmates. This exhibition lets us to step into something little strange, to step on a bridge. “On The Bridge” we reach beyond the teacher´s everyday work and introduce our own expertise. Our observations of the world change into visual proposals of how things could be understood.

The bridge symbolizes our group, the bridge supports and connects. There is a good view from the bridge to many directions. You can see far from the bridge and leave the past behind.
