Gothenburg Design festival

The Weaving Workshop Revisited

During October the Architecture hall in the museum will be transformed into a weaving lab where different ways of practice-based research will be explored. The Weaving Workshop Revisited is held on occasion of the 100-year anniversary of the Bauhaus school.

In the spirit of Anni Albers, Bauhaus weaver, designer and writer, this two-day symposium will focus on ways to make practice-based research public. Anni Albers is recognised as one of the first weavers who theorized weaving through the writing of essays as part of her work as a textile artist. Her influence continues to provide us with key references in textile research today.

A 4-meter wide loom will be placed in the Architecture Hall at the Röhsska Museum as the focal point of the Weaving Workshop Revisited. The loom will be activated through presentations throughout October.
