Fine Little Day + Skånes Handicraft Association


During the 1900s, Swedish handicraft associations built up unique collections of traditional crafts and objects. The digitization of these collections began in 1996 and became realized in 2014 at Digital Museum. Skånes Handicraft Association is now taking a step further into the digitization and have invited visual artists Henning Trollbäck and Elisabeth Dunker to interpret objects from the collections. The work process is being documented and shared via Instagram.





The project, run by Elisabeth Dunker of Fine Little Day (based out of Gothenberg, Sweden) with the aim to increase interest in handicraft collections at Digital Museum. The pieces will become unique products produced by Fine Little Day and/or Skånes Handicraft Association, and the project will end with a Spring/Autumn exhibition 2017.

"The handicraft archive holds fantastic material and objects to get inspired and learn from. The ability to look back in history and reconnect with lost treasures with the help of contemporary design, and social networks, feels incredibly exciting", Elisabeth Dunker.

Follow the project throughout the year on Instagram at @finelittleday and @slojdiskane and under the hashtag #handicraftarchives. There, you will also find out more information about next year’s spring exhibitions and the final autumn exhibition in Kristianstad.

Let's take a look!
