Textile Studio
The days for individualists

Textile studio - with the kind permission of our students

Embroidery with professional help
and exchange

In a cheerful round with other "textile enthusiasts" you can

  • continue to work on projects already started
  • plan and start a new project
  • try out new techniques
  • browse through books
  • experiment with unknowns
  • get practical support for your projects from one of our popular distance learning courses

 We love the variety of possibilities and are happy to share them with you.

The attendance days for our local long-term courses "Master Needle Artisan" and the "Meisterklasse" will also be held on these days.

In the workshop you have a wide range of tools at your disposal

  • Needles
  • Auxiliary instruments
  • braiding chairs
  • Smocking Machine
  • Knitting machine
  • Sewing machine
  • Embellisher
  • Stencil cutter
  • threads and fabrics from the workshop's collection
  • and much more
  • and of course books, books, books

 slat frames can be used on loan, but they cannot be taken home.

Of course, on these days you can also explore the material and colour variety of the Painters Threads in person instead of just looking at them on the net.

A coffee machine provides for the physical well-being, tea and water for the necessary liquid, so that the muscles do not cramp. WiFi and a Desktop are also available.

For a small fee we can pick you up from Passau main station.

The textile studio is suitable for: Beginners, re-starters, Sunday stitchers, needlework maniacs and all those who can't keep their fingers off the needle and thread and give themselves a treat every day. So for everyone who likes to work with needle and thread, who is as fascinated by the whole range of needlework as we are and who is or would like to become part of the big worldwide family of happy stitchers.
