Last Two Weeks i Latvia

The site was out of order for a while, so I’ll be covering both my 9th and 10th week in this post. My ninth week in Latvia started off by my class taking a trip to Za?usala, or “Rabbit Island”, a little island on The Daugava river. We were there for the duration of our painting lessons […]


7th and 8th week in Latvia

I skipped one week due to connectivity issues, so I’ll be covering both my 7th and 8th week in this post. During my 7th week we had a break, relating to First of May celebrations, I assume.

Last two weeks

I am already back in Finland but wanted to do a little summary on how my last two  week went in Reykjavik. On fifth week I experimented a lot in the textile department. I got to learn new techniques in printing and got familiar with different materials. It was also a very busy week because […]

Time for the exhibition!

Under the Layers. That is the name that I gave to my exhibition that includes a set of prints and some sewed Japanese paper. I spent 6 weeks in Oslo Graphic Barceloneta and learned to use an art graphic method, serigraphy. During those six weeks I had to get an idea for an exhibition of […]

Fourth week – Reykjavik

    Finally got to learn how the prints are made. It’s an interesting technique that occurs lots of steps.We used this special substance to paint the frames that we use in printing. Next we placed the frame with our works on this light box that makes the substance stick in the frame in parts […]

Hello and sorry for not posting here for a long time. Days are terribly busy now, crammed up with work and photos, so I don’t even really find time to take photos for myself – just going to my town after work and sitting in front if computer the rest of the evening before going […]
