I am Frida, the writer of this blog.
I live in Sweden, in a little house with a garden in the forest close to Gothenburg. I live with my husband Ola and Billy and Ivar the Angora rabbits.
For as long as I can remember I have been creating things, starting with paper, sequins and glue going via polymer clay, oil painting a sculpting, working my way up to silver, contemporary jewellery, arriving at knitting, spinning, weaving and dyeing, and I don’t think I have landed yet.
I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Konstfack University of Arts, Crafts and Design, actually as a contemporary jeweller. I find that an education in art is very versatile and I always draw on my past experiences in my present pursuits.
I love photography, but I’m not very good at it, and definitely not the camera aspect of it. So Instagram turned out to be a great medium for me, with small pictures taken on the go. But, I feel I have just a little bit more to say that won’t come to its right on Instagram, being of course a platform for photos. So this blog is the perfect extension of the Instagram account.
Fridays are my favourite days, so what could be a better reason for naming my former dyeing studio, and now my blog after it, well, maybe the fact that Friday starts with my name. 😉
I recon I have what I need in my life, I even have enough to help others, so, through Action Aid, I is sponsor a girl in need in India. Here name is Geetha, she lives in a very remote location in the north west of india. The contribution helps her and the other children in the village to go to school, to know their rights in the Indian society and keep their unique traditions and language alive.
Thank you for your support and I appreciate you stopping by!
