Stimuli Wiring System

by Sina Dyks , textile graduate

bits and bytes that form the warp and the weft

Exploring the tension between mechanically produced and hand crafted




Why do I choose certain colors, why is one more interesting than the other?




I trust my hypersensitive intuition when connecting structures and tactility to color, creating an exciting overwhelming experience in textile design

Fragile and Fluctuating Centre

by Yulia Hmarnaia , textile graduate




What draws my attention is the unembellished, the painful and the crude seized in a perceptible poetic outcome. Chronicles of an ever-changing dialogue, permeating worldliness within discernible statutory scenes


In the context of fashion, my foremost interest lies in deconstructing my own established boundaries


Relying on the grotesque interpretation of human intimacy, I narrate a performance of flesh and undisclosed actuality


“A monstruous unleashing of appetites, a liberation of the basest instincts, a crackling of burnt lives prematurely exposed tot he flame.”

– Antonin Artaud

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.
