About

a night in spain to a loom in latvia.

one night out while living in spain i found edgars. he was hitchhiking to africa but i turned his trail around back north and we've been together ever since. we continued traveling for four years and were exposed to so many wonderful things. Even crossed an ocean on a motorless ship and learned to plow the earth with horses. And all the while we began dreaming of a little house somewhere and somehow in the countryside. Thats where we are now. Its been over a year now and are roots are growing deeper everyday.
during our travels we picked up some skills and sparks for the fire. I learned weaving in Norway at a handicap community. The first time i walked in the workshop i feel in love with all those clanky looms. but since we were traveling it wasn't possible to have a (floor) loom. So i made cardboard backstrap looms and wove whatever and whenever I could.
over the traveling years we made a couple studios for the creative fix. move in, create, then in three months move out, until our hearts told us to come back to latvia (edgars homeland). here we live in the peaceful countryside surrounded by forests and that sweet northern light (
we are also what they call homesteaders. we grow and collect most of our food (and drink:) the craft and the garden are both beautiful things to split a day into and fullfil the spirit. In spring and summer time we host volunteers (through woofing) who wishes to learn about sustainble living and organic gardening.

    I started weaving in Norway where i worked with gifted handicap ladies in a traditional studio. the first time i walked in and heard the sound of all those clanky looms together i was in love. I just setup looms there and since have been selftaught

Seasonal Greetings!

Hobo Holidays are two humble crafters working with and around nature. Each work is the outcome of our devotion and passion. they are traveling souls that met in spain and united in craft. now the studio is settled in the Latvian countryside to expand the craftiness and all the other projects with sustainable living. Clare's focus is weaving rugs from 100% recycled material and Edgars is throwing anything from drums or kalimbas to fermentation jars. this will be a fun season.
