With inspiration from all parts of daily life, CreativeClowns is much more than just the embroideries we see here today. It is a vision of making embroideries easy, accessible and exciting without pointers or limiting rules.

The artists share the embroideries and both work on all pieces simultaneously, without knowing the end result beforehand. The embroideries is a reflection of the daily life, where ugly, crazy and beautiful are mixed into the big picture that tells us something about the world we live in today. The artists tackles new shapes and colors with curiosity, and are working with both small, big, flat and 3D shapes. The biggest embroidery so far is over 500 000 stitches big and measures around 1.2x1.2 meter.
The future for CreativeClowns is exciting. The artists are planning a revolution within handcraft as embroideries, making it more accessible, interesting and fun. Discussions evolves around creating the best embroidery yarn in the world, improving embroidery weaves and arranging workshops to invite people into the wonderful world of color, inspiration, shapes, spontaneity, patterns, glitter and embroideries!
