This homepage contains information about my work on analysis and reconstruction of tablet woven textiles from different times and places. I started out in the early eighties working fulltime in Egon Hansens textile reconstruction workshop at Moesgaard Museum, Denmark. Egon Hansen was one of the pioneers investigating the complicated techniques of tablet woven finds from the Iron Age,  Viking Age and Middle Ages.
After I finished my education at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, The School of Conservation I worked at Silkeborg Museum and wrote my first articles about tablet weaving. Later I became head of Conservation Centre Vejle (www.konsv.dk) and here I work among many other tasks on research into ancient textiles – especially tablet weavings. Recently I successfully defended my Ph.D. dissertation on “Early Iron Age Tablet Weaving from Denmark” (in Danish language).
