Since 2002, Not Quite has been a cultural centre growing in a picturesque mill town in Northern Dalsland, Sweden. In the heart of Fengersfors, artists, designers and craftsmen of various kinds have set up their studios and workshops in the old brick factory. Now smoke and steam can be seen rising from pottery ovens, forges, carpenters’ hot saws and a bakery. There are also exhibition spaces, an art gallery and an arts and craft boutique. Exhibitions show photography, sculpture, painting, installations, and performance. Members of Not Quite also hold courses, workshops and other participatory events for visitors to the factory.
Not Quite has also become one of the most popular destinations in the region for locals and tourists. The creative environment and feel of the old factory makes for a special place to have a nice lunch or dinner, or to relax with a coffee and some delicious pastries baked in a wood fired oven at Brukets Godaste.
