About Birgitta Nordström

I am a textile artist and a doctoral candidate in Craft at HDK-Valand, Academy of Craft and Design, University of Gothenburg. The research is focusing on woven textiles used for funerals or in situations of perinatal loss. Keywords in my investigation are infant shrouds, weaving, textile action, care taking and dignity. I collaborate with parents that have experienced losing a small child and with clinical staff at medical wards.
