Oslo-based weaver, artist, and designer Ida Hagen (b. 1979) completed her textile studies at Capellagården in Sweden in 2022. In her practice she juggles between art and utility items, mastering everything from weaving and knitting to spinning, felting, and sewing. She also works sculpturally, in large and small scales. Her work has been exhibited in Norway, Sweden, and South Korea.
«Most of the time it’s colors, materials or textures that trigger me. I can see a pink, sun-bleached curtain next to a plant with bright green leaves in a flower pot in terracotta. That can be enough to give me an idea of something I want to weave – as simple as that.»
