My name is Åsa Wassberg and I run Wassberg Studios.
I am based in Adelaide, South Australia, but was born in Sweden and
lived there until I migrated to Australia about 15 years ago.
I have always made things, anything, out of fabrics - quilts,
sculptures, cushions, bed linen, aprons etc. I am also a screen printer
so I have always added that extra dimension to my work. I have always
run, parallel to each other, lines of marketable, more useful items, as
well as one-off objects.
You can have a look at my previous work in the ARCHIVE.
I have a really good time making things and I hope that feeling is
reflected in my work. I especially like the coinpurses as I can play
with each individual one until I’m satisfied. But preparing the new
patterns for the wheatbags is also an interesting process I am
I have, for a long time, been working closely with an organisation
called Port Business Partnership – Classic Linen Sewing Services. They
are located in Port Adelaide and do most of my basic sewing. It is
essentially a sheltered workshop for people recovering from mental
illness. I do all the designing, printing, matching, preparation and
finishing touches and they do the sewing. It works really well for me
and the people are fantastic.
I sell my things mostly at markets but also attend Royal Adelaide Show
and other bigger events in South Australia, as well as interstate. See here for detailed
list of locations and dates.

Why they look so good and spunky?
Because I design and screen print them!
And because they are 100% made in Australia.
