The Skjoldehamn find is known to many interested in Northern European textiles, and there has been much discussion about this remarkably complete find since its discovery in 1936.  In this exhibition original artifacts from the find will be on display.

As a result of previous work I have done, I was pleased to be commissioned to create two replicas of the hood for an interactive portion of the exhibition.  In addition, the recreation of the blanket from the find I wove in 2012 will also be part of a display allowing the public to experience these textiles first-hand.

The exhibition will be opening on September 16, 2015 at 7 PM.  Information in Norwegian here.
