Vævernes Hus in Vestsjælland is a dynamic actor with a unique community of zealots and enthusiasts. We are a design company with a weaving school and an experimental Rug Studio.
Together with the association Weavers in Vestsjælland (Vævere I Vestsjælland), we initiate projects that convey knowledge about weaving. We develop and disseminate projects in close collaboration with local museums, national and Nordic partners.
We are interested in the old weaving craft and the endless design possibilities. We use almost-forgotten techniques in new and different ways and emphasize that our textiles have a new and vibrant expression that resonates in the present. At the same time, it is our deepest desire to pass on knowledge and craftsmanship to younger generations of textile enthusiasts, so that the young weavers can bring weaving safely into the future.
