Closed… although it will be Christmas cozy in December!
We at Not Quite thank all visitors for this season! It’s been a fantastic crowd and full speed, and we’re just as happy about that as always. We also thank Evi and Mieke who have run the café for the past three years but are now moving on to new adventures. Our mill colleagues at the bakery Brukets godaste are open as usual. And if it’s any of us artists, crafters, writers, photographers…that you want to get a hold of, take a look at our members page ‘We are Not Quite.
It will be Christmas cozy December 16-17, sales and open a little here and there at the mill and at Handlarn. Read about it a little further down!
Next year, starting April 27, 2024, there will therefore be some news, both in the café but also for our Shop and Gallery, which will be moved to new premises at the mill. Until then – check us out on our social media!

Christmas coziness 16-17 December
Welcome to a weekend of Christmas coziness! On December 16-17 at 11-17 there will be Christmas fun at the mill and at Handlarn. We at Not Quite are opening a pop-up shop in the new shop premises and the café is running a sneak opening. In addition to that, Brukets färg and Brukets godaste are open. There will be workshops, sales and a bit of everything. It will be simply cozy!
News for the cafe
Now it is nailed down that the café operation will return to Not Quite. We are very happy that Not Quite members Malin Robertsson Harén and Ida Stelter will have joint responsibility for the café. Both are old in the context, Ida has worked for many years at the bakery Brukets godaste and Malin worked in the café for many years before we ran the concept with a tenant. A seasonal and varied menu with lots of local produce is what will be offered. It will taste delicious!
Green Deal in practice
During 2022/2023, Not Quite collaborated with Institute for (X), Denmark and Rucka Art Foundation, Latvia around the concept of Sustainability. Now you can read the report. The project was financed by Nordic Culture Point.
Not Quite’s Sloydtrukk is a craft workshop on wheels. A craft workshop that is available to those who need and want to craft. We will come to you! Book and read more about sloydtrukken.
Food and coffee…
… and other things to put in your stomach! In Not Quite Café, you can find both light snacks and food. The cafe is now closed for the season.
Pillow or cup?

Not Quite Live
During the 2021 season, an opportunity was created to look at the exhibitions in the project Not Quite Live. You can also follow Not Quite Exhibitions on YouTube.
Soil purification with plants – how a problem becomes a new asset
At Fengersfors mill in Dalsland, methods are currently being tested to clean soil from heavy metals with the help of plants. A first display garden with soil-purifying plants opened at Fengersfors mill in the summer of 2022, and another one is to be made in the spring of 2023. The project has also mapped how the industry has affected the entire landscape between the two lakes Knarrbysjön and Ärr, which were used for the inflow of timber and the shipment of finished paper when the paper mill was up and running. In a landfill area southeast of the mill area, the so-called mesa field, a path with large ceramic works has been laid out. The previously inaccessible area is now possible to visit.
The project includes testing of phytoremediation plants, as well as a broader investigation of the relationship between industry, history, landscape and environment. A starting point for the project is to contribute to developing new forms for the cultural-historical environment to be preserved and accessible, and to create new public spaces in the countryside.
At Not Quite we have a voluntary entrance.
We gratefully accept your financial contribution!
