About your host, Sofia Holt

I have grown up with handcraft, where creativity and innovation has been central. Each day consisted and still consists of creating, if only a small sketch idea or a chair built in the workshop. I like to use leftover, recycled materials where possible and strive for a sustainable production. The small scale craftsmanship, where I do all the work myself has developed to also work with 3D programs to create renderings and technical drawings for larger productions where other artisans make the final products.

What we will do

When you arrive you will be welcomed with the choice of your cold or hot drink. You will have a short guided walk thru the studio and the background story of my colourful artworks. They all have their very own meaning and inspiration behind.

Also, I will hold a warming up exercise to get your creative juice flowing and it will definitely make it easier for you to reach that fun flow in your making. Finally, I will guide you through the entire stamp-making process, the tools we will use and the benefits of each tool.

What we will provide

- Carved Stamp: A 10x10cm linoleum stamp, carving knives, recycled and traditional handmade Vietnamese paper and postcard to print your stamp on. 
- 1 glass of soft drink/coffee/tea/win (additional wine 90k, soft drink 20k)
- Thousand smiles :-)

This workshop is for any level, you just have to be curious. If you already are an artist, contact me before and I will customise a more advanced workshop for your level.

Notes

About Sofia:

I am a Swedish artist and designer that came to Saigon 2014 to make furniture and interior collections for a big company in Vietnam. Today I freelance and my art and design aim to help and motivate people. The inspiration comes from processing thoughts and experiences of difficulties that I, or my friends encounter functionally or emotionally in our daily life. Which gives a depth and a story to every design. I prefer to focus a lot on the design process and make it investigative, with a large part being hands-on work. The result will be an object, a picture, a space, a concept or a workshop. The message is usually colourful and inclusive, with a touch of humour. Because laughing makes us relax and clear our minds, I believe that it can be the best way of introducing and handling a heavy subject.
