ABOUT THE WEAVING WORKSHOP

ABOUT THE WEAVING WORKSHOP

The Weaving Workshop is a place for handy and creative people looking to acquire or improve weaving and other craftwork skills, explore ethnographic traditions and textile-making process, learn about the making and wearing of national costumes, and let their creativity flow by creating their own national costume or other textiles.

Here, you will find more than 40 looms, including mechanical 19th century looms with pulleys or levers and early 20th century semi-automatic, or Viļumsons’, looms.

The Decorative Folk Art Studio “Durbe” is operating under the wing of the Weaving Workshop. The participants are particularly invested in studying and making national costumes for the ethnographic costume collection of Tukums Museum.

The workshop organises applied arts exhibitions, individual and group training, classes for students and adults, creative workshops and continuing education courses, as well as consultations on choosing and making national costumes. It also sells souvenirs and creations by weavers and other craftswomen of Tukums.
