There are three special exhibition here in Stockholm and I have already reported on my visit to the first, the one on weaving and craft as a school subject.
Now it is time to tell you about the second exhibition I went to. It is held at Liljevalchs and you can read about it here in English.
There are three things worth seeing; the leaves, the modern craft and the open workshop.
The Leaves have been decorated in may different ways by 2000 'ordinary' people. Some leaves were quite unique. Here are a few photos:

It was a day of great fun!
