/ Textile Kultur Haslach

The association TEXTILE KULTUR HASLACH was founded in 1991 with the intention to further textile art and culture on a broad basis. The Textile Centre Haslach organises courses, experimental workshops and special exhibitions.

The aim has been to create a link between tradition and modernity, art and craft, research and teaching experiment and practical experience. A big summer symposium is held in July each year. In the course of the 2-weeks’ event there are courses on offer centred around weaving on the hand-loom, but also quite a number of other textile techniques and creative crafts, held by renowned coaches from various countries. TEXTILE KULTUR HASLACH also organises a Weavers’ Market which is well known beyond the region. In the oldest part of the town textile creators from all over Europe present their high-quality products and original creations. A number of exhibitions, experimental workshops and a supporting programme with special lectures, theatrical and dance performances, readings, fashion shows and musical events complement the symposium, and are open to the general public as well as the experts.
