Abstract

Spiraling through Generations A dress starting from the idea that culture and craft lives and forms through generation. This gave the idea of working in a cross generational collaboration with my grandmother, (Greta Stenbom age 91) my mother (Inger Ohrn,) and my two children (Jonathan, 5 and Justin, 3). I started this design by draping using two spirals to create the fit and shape of the dress. I choose two linen fabrics; a hand woven sheet, and a new piece of cloth. Then handed the fabric with basted pattern shapes to my mother, who tie-dyed the fabric following the pattern shapes. After the tie-dyed pieces were complete, we together designed an embroidery carried out by my grandmother and my two children. It was a great process enjoyed by all involved, but also a memory that will be cherished for years to come a meeting of creativity across four generations.
