ATT TÄLJA EN KLÄNNING ELLER SY EN DÖRR - en autoetnografisk undersökning av en slöjdprocess
To craft a dress or sew a door - an auto ethnographic analysis of a slojdprocess
The goal to this study is to find a way to create clothes in a slojd - and craft context, and to connect it to history, present and the future. In cause of the negative impact the textile industry has on the environment it is hard not talk about create clothes with out this in consideration. Data for this study where gathered by a practice research of creating clothes inspired of someone else's slojdprocess. The method that was used in the study was auto ethnology and write as reflection. This to enable observation and reflection over the own making and recognise small details that before have not been of importance. The survey is conducted and inspired by Nordström, Karlsson and Roslund Svensson and their different ways of working and investigating in their own technology and materials. Inspired from the material and the selected slojprocess guidelines were determined. Two different kind of garment were created, one from an old wedding dress and the other, a jacket, was made from new woven fabric. The results show that making garments inspired by someone else`s slojdprocess can give a bigger focus in the crafting. One way to be inspired of other slojdprocess is to find guidelines and create clothes accordingly. Choose fabric regarding these guidelines and then follow them thru the process. This will result in many question, but in the same time a bigger focus in the crafting because every step of the process is very important. Nordström, Karlsson and Roslund Svensson did all find inspiration in some kind of recycling, Nordström through the material, Karlsson in form of inspiration of an old door and Roslund Svensson in a solid form, more specifically an old branch. The respect and reverence for the old object, its story and the craft is a connection to the history. Just a few generations back clothes where repaired and remake a case they where broken or torn. The research has shown that if clothes were created in a similar way as in this study, it would be an increase for the environment.
