Quilt with traditional costume – dirndl-style table runner
Workshop leader: Sigrid Artmayr
This course teaches the quilting technique using a sewing machine. A table runner will be designed and sewn from prepared recycled traditional costume fabrics provided by the course instructor. Basic sewing skills are required for this course.

Fast fashion and its negative effects on our environment are one of the major issues of our time. Clothes are usually only worn for a short time and then end up in landfill sites. We can change this by treating old clothes as a valuable resource and creating our own personal style with upcycling art.

Drawing a Thread

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.
