Meister Class  – Part Time

Workroom  Seminar (weekend)

We have a dream!

In the calm of the Bayer Forest we build an international competence center for Textile design and training in embroidery. Textile craftsmanship is preserved in a modern form – so work with needle and thread will preserve its place in the 21st century. This will only come true together with you! We teach you the extensive knowledge of needlework and accompany you on the way to your own idea. It is a winding path that does not lead to material wealth. The joy of hand work, the knowledge to make a very important contribution to the mental health of the world – the joy that arises from this, weighs all the hardships!

Join Us!

Textile design = fascination and diversity without end and we are in the midst of it. Skills and expertise are the basis for many areas where you can make yourself successful in a textile craft. We give you not only the craftsmanship through our training in needlework, but also teach you commercial basics. Learning by doing – the best way to prepare for a future activity in this area!

The ISTA certificate is given worldwide attention and is a good basis for the start of self-employment or the application for external examination as a Designing Crafts WoMan/subject embroidery.

And who knows – maybe you’re the person who wants to work with us on the future of  House of Textile Arts!
