Workroom Training in Needlework

Full Time or Part Time

We have a dream!

In the calm of the Bayerwald we build an International Center of Competence for Textile Design and training in needlework. Keep Textile Crafts alive and give them a modern shape – this will ensure art made with a needle and thread it’s place in the 21st century. This can only come true together with you!

We teach you the extensive knowledge of the textile arts and crafts and guide you on the way to your own idea. It is a rough path that will not really lead to material wealth. The joy of working with one’s hand, the knowledge that this is a very important contribution to the mental health of the world – the satisfaction that this creates, out weighs all hardships!



Be Part of It!

Textiles design = fascination and variety without end and we are right in the middle of it. Know-how and perfect craftmanship are the basis for many areas in textile art in which you can establish your own business successfully. We not only give you the technical skills for this purpose, but also a commercial basis. Learning by doing – the best way to prepare for a subsequent activity in this area!

The ISTA certificate is respected worldwide, and is a good basis for the start of an independent workroom and the application to the external audit as a Designing Crafts WoMan / subject embroidery.

Who knows – maybe YOU are that special person that wants to help us lead House of Textile Arts into the future
