Linnéa Engwall


Samarbetsmönster, combines textile printing and methods about designing for and with children. The intention of the project was to create a meaningful opportunity for children to be heard by influencing a cultural and public environment: the playhouse in the Gathenhielmska garden. Within the project a method was explored to collaborate and create patterns together with a group of four children aged 4-7 through two workshops.

During the first workshop the children investigated and documented shapes hidden in the Gathenhielmska house. The shapes were transformed into tools for stamping and screen printing. During the second workshop these tools were used to create collaborative patterns together. Thereafter, these patterns were further interpreted. The project also resulted in textile furnishing for the playhouse, co-created and chosen by the children.
