Riina O in Oslo

May 3, 2017

Riina O was invited to Oslo by The Norwegian National Opera and Ballet to teach the glove making workshop during their Prøverommet event.

 

Handcrafting soft leather gloves is a centuries-old skill, going back to the Middle Ages. Unfortunately, during the last half century, the tradition has started to vanish due to the labor-intensiveness and mechanisation. Only a few skilled professionals around the world are currently practising the art of making gloves by hand.

 

 

It would be wonderful to bring the craft back in wider use and make it last.
I would love to see women and men using more gloves again, adding to their dressing code this mysterious and elegant accessory.

 

It was a real pleasure being part of this exciting craft event!
