Ever since Nicklas Skovgaard bought his first small toy weave from Brio in a second-hand shop, which was quickly replaced by a slightly larger frame weave, he has been weaving vests, dresses and tops in a wealth of shades that balance strong and neutral colours. The fact that the craft is time-consuming simply helps to create a new, more conscious form of fashion – and serves as a contrast to the buy-and-throw-away culture.
Thursday 29th October – See Nicklas Skovgaard at Nørgaard Paa Strøget from 3PM to 5PM.
