Hobro Kirke - Photografer: Steen Balle  

CHURCH

The church space is one of the most obvius and ideal places for the application of textiles.


In the autumn of 2007, I was commissioned by the parish council of The Church of Hobro to recreate the altar carpet.

The original carpet was embroidered by women of the parish, using a pattern designed by H G Skovgaard.

The carpet was worn out, and my task was to transform the embroidery pattern into weave, dye the yarn in colours as close to the original embroidery yarns as possible, and finally to weave the altar carpet.
The carpet was to be completed in time for the church to inaugurate their new, yet still original altar carpet on Whitsunday, 11 May 2008 - a carpet made for this particular space and its fine unity.
