Longing For Now

by Max Willebrand Westin, textile graduate

In my practice, I investigate how material, social and emotional values can transform through an alchemical process - the act of crafting

I am drawn to working on a smaller scale,
and I always preferred a finer thread over a thicker yarn

To me this is about attentive awareness, compassion and resilience, shape-shifting, rethinking and revaluing

Many thanks to Hannes Holén, Catharina Willebrand, Torbjörn Westin, Felix Willebrand Westin, Inge Vaandering, Olga Elliot, Katla Taylor, Thora Thøgersen & Freja Wesik for helping me out and making my graduation possible.
