Geocache Description:


Capellagården ligger i Vickleby på södra Öland, en by vid kanten av Stora Alvaret. Här upptäckte professor Carl Malmsten Elliotsgården, en förfallen bondgård som 1957 inköptes och renoverades kärleksfullt till att bli Capellagården.

"Min vision var att skapa en skola för hand och ande, en mötesplats för ungdom från hela landet, besjälade av en önskan att inom sitt hantverk förena skönhet och funktion. Detta arbete ledde 1960 till bildandet av Stiftelsen Capellagården, en skola för gestaltande arbete." - Carl Malmsten

Capellagården är i dag en fristående internatskola som drivs av en ideell stiftelse. Skolan har efter hand också utvecklats till en internationell mötesplats med studerande från många olika länder. Har bedrivs utbildning i Textil, Keramik, Trädgård och Möbelsnickeri.

Inne på Capellagården finns en trädgårdsbutik och kafé och sommartid måste sommarutställningen över elevernas arbeten ses. Den är belägen invid kyrkan längs landsvägen. I Vickleby ligger även det anrika Bo Pensionat där du även kan äta..

 

Capellagården, the Capella Farm, lies in Vickleby in southern Öland, a village on the edge of the Great Alvaret. Here discovered Professor Carl Malmsten the Elliot farm, a dilapidated farmhouse in 1957 purchased and renovated to be the Capella Farm.

"My vision was to create a school of hand and spirit, a meeting place for youth from all over the country, inspired by a desire to unite in their craft beauty and function. This work led in 1960 to the formation of the Foundation Capella Farm, a school for drama work." - Carl Malmsten

Capella Farm is now an independent boarding school run by a nonprofit foundation. The school has also gradually evolved into an international venue with students from many different countries. Has conducted training in textiles, ceramics, gardening and Carpentry.

Contained in Capella Farm is a garden shop and cafe and summertime must the summer exhibition of students' work be seen. It is situated opposite the church along the main road. In Vickleby is also the ancient Bo boarding house where you can eat.
