Scandinavian design superstars ARNE & CARLOS have gained a passionate international following, not only through their work with well-known names such as Comme des Garçons, Urban Outfitters, Dale of Norway, Regia and Rowan but also their nine bestselling instructional books and numerous online tutorials.
It is in their books and videos that we are warmly welcomed into their vibrant, colourful, creative world, which is based in a renovated train station in the Valdres region of Norway, north of Oslo. Here we see glimpses of the eclectic collections of memorabilia, the rich variety of materials and patterns, the natural elements outside and homey comforts of inside that spark their ever-active imaginations. These are the sources of their hugely popular handcraft designs, which reflect their enthusiasm for finding new ways to value the old, as well as their commitment to developing innovative ideas that are wholly their own.
In this engaging lecture, ARNE & CARLOS speak frankly about the way they live, and how every one of us can be inspired by the everyday things that surround us. Learn how to create fabulous, unique knitting and crochet designs, as well as other projects, using their unique lifestyle techniques, and walk away feeling energized and finally ready to bring your own original ideas to life.
