Desire for towel weaving
As one of the oldest handicrafts, you are joining the trend
Are you fascinated by coloured, striped or chequered handwoven fabrics? Would you like to weave a trendy towel after your own colour design? Self-made fashion is in vogue and during this workshop you get to weave your own creation on a large loom in one afternoon.
Let the expert women at Webateliers (Weaving Atelier) Obersimmental introduce you to the traditional technique of weaving. Enjoy doing the work by hand with boat and coil, using your foot to operate the large loom and the views of the Wildstrubel. Get first-hand experience weaving each thread into a longer piece of fabric and watch how it grows into a towel. With the motto «Slow Food for the Soul», you will weave the most creative souvenir from Simmental.
