Dive into the world of the weaver, a world of threads, textures and colours and weave your own fabric for a cushion. A loom with treadles will be ready for each participant. Choose your threads and colours, and get to work. You will experience what it feels like to weave on a standing loom, and while weaving, you will see how the fabric slowly grows under your hands. After the workshop, you can leave the fabric you wove on the loom. We will sew it into a cushion, and a few days later you will receive your fabric as a cushion at home. (The workshop price includes shipping costs.)

 

Handweaving is an age-old fabric-making technique but an inexhaustible play of patterns, yarns, textures and colours. Eva Klee revives this old craft in her handweaving shop. Exclusive, high-quality custom-made hand-woven fabrics, one-offs and reproductions of fabrics are created here artisanally. The aim of each fabric design is seductive quality with an eye for detail.

 

As early as the age of 11, Eva Klee took over her mother’s Swedish loom. Partly because of this, weaving feels like a second skin to Eva. She is constantly searching for new fabric designs in her studio, an inexhaustible interplay of patterns, materials and colours. Small changes in the weaving process can result in unexpected and fascinating changes. The ‘discovering along the way’ and critical questioning of technical perfection fuel her continuous research. Great technical skills combined with creativity characterise her work.

 

Eva Klee trained as a hand weaver for three years in southern Germany. She then studied Monumental Design at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague.
