Dressing the church, 2021

This work places itself within the field of hand woven textile design. The project presents three examples of an exploration on alternative expression and areas of application in hand woven rugs in relation to Christian symbolism and the church room. The idea takes ground from the church being both a historical and active place, that adapts and evolves together with society.


By researching Christian color symbolism and symbols the frame of the work is decided, along with an evaluation of a technical pre-study. The project uses the warp as a design challenge in several ways; as a color design element, as a fringe and testing versatile possibilities of one warp creating different expressions. Dressing the church is a work that wants to contribute to widening the field of church textiles; adding expressive color, alternative materials and finishing.
