Galleri Yamanashi opened in Stockholm’s old town, Gamla Stan, in 2014 with an inaugural exhibition of Issey Miyake’s work entitled ‘Magical Textile’.

The gallery’s mission is to keep traditional handicraft techniques alive through cultural exchange, and to support younger artists and makers by bringing their work to a wider audience through exhibitions, workshops and competitions. Our central location enables a wide, multi-national audience to discover these talented artists and their work.

As well as introducing Japanese artists to a European audience, we host exhibitions by a variety of Swedish and European artists and makers as well as Japanese artists who live and work in Europe.

This wonderful, historic space is available for rent for events and exhibitions.

Handmade Baskets by Ulla Neogard

26 June – 7 August 2019 12:00 – 18:00
Workshop 28 – 30 June

This is Ulla Neogard’s fourth exhibition. She is one of the leading makers of Swedish Birch Bark baskets, a craft with a long traditional history in Sweden.

Birch bark is used in Swedish daily life for rucksacks, shoes, baskets, and other kitchenwares. It is very strong and repairable, making it an eco-friendly and beautiful material for the future.

Ulla’s baskets are unique and beautiful, and represent many hours searching for the best materials from the north Swedish forest of Helsingland. She says it gets more difficult each year to find good materials.

She will hold workshops from 28th – 30th June, making useful basic items for the home, or for presents.
