Klara Bothén

Klara Bothén (1987)

I am a Swedish textile artist/designer, originally from Kristinehamn. I studied Textile-Garment-Design at the School of Arts & Crafts in Steneby, and did my BFA in the spring of 2012. I now live and work in Gothenburg.

Most of my creative work is built up around a character and a specific place. I like to use a variety of mediums to tell stories through material, and to create images. I work with embroidery, printmaking, photography, costumes and installations, and most often, found material. I’m sourcing a lot of my inspiration from folk art, rituals, old craft traditions and everyday life. Making is essential.
