LECTURE "THE WORLD OF ARNE & CARLOS"

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.

Thursday night 19.30 - 21.30

Arne & Carlos will sell  and sign their books after the lecture.

THE LECTURE IS IN NORWEGIAN

SEATING FOR SATURDAY NIGHT

This year all guests will be seated at the tables by us. 

When you enter the festivity room, you will be met by one of our helpers and they will seat you. The first guests will be seated by the stage up front, and then we will fill up tables downwards until all seats are taken.

We are fully booked this evening, however, due to smaller space this year, we have a smaller number of guests and thus everyone will get fine seats.

This is to avoid that there are lots of empty single seats at all tables.
