| Hawar Textile Institute & Vezel


The family-run Hawar Textile Institute is a Walhalla for the textile enthusiast. Teachers from home and abroad come to pass on knowledge and skills in the large and atmospheric workshop in Oldeberkoop (Friesland). There is also a very extensive shop and an inspiring gallery, making it an incubator where new and old materials and textile techniques are (re)discovered.


Hawar sells various materials and tools during the festival for the textile enthusiast and offers the workshop Experimenting with plant printing. You can also purchase the magazine Vezel at Hawar’s stand.


In Vezel, you will read personal textile adventures and be taken away by the enthusiasm of others. Knowledge, skills and experience are shared. Discover new techniques and materials or new applications of old techniques and materials. What could be more fun than putting them to work afterwards? Vezel encourages you to dream, to fantasize, to try it yourself!


What started over 40 years ago as a newsletter about spinning and dyeing has grown over the years into a broad and practical textile magazine, which is still published by the Spin- & Verfkrant Foundation, a group of volunteers who feel it is important to share the knowledge of materials and techniques and the experiences with this knowledge in the present day, thus keeping the craft alive.


Vezel has been created for and by textile lovers for 42 years. It is a platform where everyone can share their textile adventures, which makes Vezel so special.
