The old school house in Vattlång is currently owned by Petra Shara Stoor and Fredrik Fernlund and goes under the name Helsinglight. It also used to be the artistic residency, art studio and gallery to the renowned Swedish artist Gunnar Greiber and his wife and artist Else Nyström Greiber. A tribute art exhibition to Gunnar Greiber will be now organised in Nordanstig and Helsinglight Art Gallery will be part of this joint exhibition and exhibit artwork from their art collection by Gunnar Greiber.
Helsinglight AAiR is a big project we've been planning and visualising for quite some time now. We knew from day one when we found the building for Helsinglight in September 2015 that this building would not only fulfil our artistic dreams but also do the same for many other creative souls. We set our hearts then on working towards building a creative retreat and artistic residency for others to be able to take part of too. This will now become a reality! We're launching the first steps into the build up of this project now!
The Grand opening night was a great success. Many came to share this evening and special occasion with us and showed such appreciation of our beautiful gallery space as well as great interest and appreciation of the art exhibited by artist and co-owner of Helsinglight Petra Shara Stoor. We opened up the doors to our gallery at 6 pm and we celebrated the grand opening until Midnight.
5th-15th July we're finally opening up Helsinglight SFX Makeup Academy with a 10-day Silicone Mask Making workshop in our own stunning old school in mid north of Sweden!

We’ve got a great vision to create an artistic and magical destination/platform with our Helsinglight! A creative place filled with various alternative artworks and performances, everywhere.. We’re inspired by Norse Mythology and Swedish folklore, mixed with LOTR, Narnia, Harry Potter, Pan’s labyrinth, The Addams Family, Alice in Wonderland... and we’ll add some of traditional Hälsingland, Sweden to it too.
Summertime is awesome and there is so much to do here and so many beautiful places to visit and explore! We love sharing our best "pearls" with people visiting us and to show stunning scenic spots or magical places with great history and marks of Norse mythology and Scandinavian folklore. If you wish to try some outdoor activities out on your day off we're more than happy to help you book them, i.e icelandic horseback riding, kayaking, fishing etc.
A while ago we announced that we were looking at the option of offering the opportunity to apply to come for a workaway experience at Helsinglight. We were happily surprised to get so many interesting people from all over Europe applying to be part of our workaway! Since this is a new experience for us too we decided to try this out with one person to start with and we chose Emma Davenport from Cheshire UK to be the first one to be part of our Workaway program.

Have you heard about the "Workaway Program"? Workaway is a cultural exchange where you volunteer to work in exchange of food and accommodation and an opportunity to learn about local lifestyles. We're currently looking into this and exploring the options to register as a host on Workaway and offer an opportunity to come for a workaway experience at Helsinglight.
