Martina Riedlmayer, born in Vienna, lives with her family and her animals – cats, dog, sheep, goats, donkeys – in an old press house in the Kamptal in the Waldviertel.
She is passionate about working with wool: dyeing, spinning, knitting, weaving and felting. She loves being out in nature, collecting and growing plants for dyeing wool. She has been taking part in craft markets for many years and gives workshops for children and adults in various organisations.
The former weaving and spinning mill Ebensee is the hub of the project, which addresses the history of the working world of women, role attributions, social achievements and controversies.
