... When threads weave up to heaven ...

Beate von Harten, Atelier für Textildesign, Restaurierung, Konservierung


This year, too, Beate von Harten welcomed visitors to the intimate atmosphere of her textile studio and demonstrated the techniques and processes of an increasingly rare handicraft: weaving. For decades she has devoted herself to making contemporary designs, likewise to the conservation of a whole range of costly objects – tapestries, carpets, handwoven fabrics. Here people could linger for a moment to witness the patient process that goes into producing a linen carpet and even try out things hands on. Two videos showed various work steps, but this time fast-forward, from the first idea to the processes of finishing and refining.
