Thesummer symposium TEXTILE KULTUR HASLACH 2023 took place between July 17th and August 4th, 2023. In an exhibition we are showing the collection of Marianne Flügel, a textile didactic who traveled all her life, collected and analysed various baskets, bags, ribbons and everyday textile objects from different cultures. This wonderful little teaching collection of primary textile techniques documents a "textile view" of the world and pays tribute to the many, mostly unnoticed little things that are often made ingeniously and can "inspire" one's own work in a variety of ways. The exhibition is still open until Sunday, January 7, 2024. Several evening events and another exhibition of contemporary work by the Belgian weaver Esther Van Schuylenbergh have also explored the theme "beFLÜGELt".

Several courses were also related to the exhibitions and treated special techniques that are rarely taught anymore. We are pleased that we could win exciting course leaders who passed on their specialist knowledge to interested parties.

Of course, also the international Weavers' Market took place on the weekend of 29./30. July 2023. At the same time, as well the “Faserzone”, a material and yarn fair, took place again.

We are happy that so many visited Haslach during that time and were part of the summer symposium!
