  • Description

    Description

    We are starting up a cultural center with communal carpentry and textile workshops, a yoga studio and some living spaces. We are also building some sort of small organic farm focusing on self sufficiency.

    Johan does dome carpentry work for a living but mainly works at home with the houses and the farming . Hedvig works half time as a handicraft teacher on a small school nearby.

    We have two properties close to each other and in between is our small patch of farmland (one acre).
    The small house where we live is a 32 square meter off-grid house that we've built ourselves using mainly recycled materials. There is no running water or electricity.
    The bigger house is a combined workshop, meeting place and living spaces.
    We've been living on these properties for four years now and a lot of the projects are in the early stages of their development.
    We have ducks, rabbits and a cat.

    We live busy lives, often with a lot of work around the houses. We both like to work.
    When we don't work we like to enjoy the outdoors, foraging, swimming, kayaking and hiking. We both also like yoga and working out. During the spring and especially summer months there is often a lot of friends and family visiting

    Hedvig has a a bachelor in handicrafts and cultural heritage. She is also a cabinet maker. She likes cooking, gardening/farming, textile handicrafts and green woodwork.
    Johan likes nature, animals, comic books, art, music, self sufficiency/homesteading and building stuff..

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    You can learn these things (and hopefully much more) from us:
    Animal care.
    Basic gardening skills.
    Some carpentry.
    Handicrafts - you will have access to our textile studio with a 150 cm loom, sewing machine, knitting materials and embroidery materials. Hedvig is knowledgeable in all these areas.
    Green woodworking.

    One or two times a month there are small handicraft gatherings with other people in the big house.
    Hiking, swimming (sea and lake), sauna and kayaking are all accessible nearby.

    We have some bikes and a car, of course you can use the bike, and we can drive you if you want to go somewhere.
    Henån is the closest village (15 minutes by car, 30 minutes by bike). In Henån there is a library, restaurants, food stores, health care etc. From Henån you can take the bus to Gothenburg, Swedens second largest city. The bus takes about an hour.
