I had the opportunity to participate in a workshop to learn the craftsmanship of hand tufting a carpet. The workshop was organised in collaboration between The School of Design and Crafts in Sweden and the Swedish carpet manufacturer Kasthall.

We were assigned yarn in limited color ranges and qualities. The motif is inspired by nature and the thought of journeys. ‘Yakin’ is Turkish and it means ‘Near’.
