In the workshop people create clothes from an initial design sketch to the final stages of production. In addition to basic equipment such as sewing machines and industrial overlock sewing machines, there are also modern equipment for steaming and ironing as well as one-of-a-kind weaving machines. We have traditional looms and an Ashford tapestry loom, as well as the TS2 digital jacquard loom from Norway. In addition, there is everything you need for knitting, embroidery, dyeing textiles and all sorts of experiments with woven fabrics.
