In the exhibition Hannah Ryggen: Weaving the World large tapestries are exhibited. These were often direct reactions to what happened in the world during Hannah Ryggen’s life. During the exhibition, you are invited to give weaving a try. In our workshop you will find a loom in which you can express your own thoughts about our time, you will also have the chance to see other people’s statements.
Hannah Ryggen used mostly wool and linen to weave. This Statement Loom will develop in a slightly different way by means of different materials such as newspaper, pencils and paper. The Statement Loom will be an ever-changing tapestry with contemporary reflections and thoughts from our visitors.
