Students will be familiar with cotton and wool, but do they know that textiles can also be made from glass, milk and metal. Under the supervision of a museum teacher, students actively work with materials from the ‘Textile Storeroom’ and books from the Stalenkamer (Sample Room). They become acquainted with various textile raw materials, semi-finished goods and end products.
For MBO colleges with a specialisation in fashion and/or textiles, programmes lasting one or more days can be arranged on request. These programmes can, for example, include lessons in which students are taught to use a handloom, a flat-knitting machine, or mechanical or manual embroidery techniques. These programmes all focus on learning and mastering various textile production techniques and experimenting with different types of weave, knitting and embroidery stitching with contemporary and special yarns. To discuss the arrangements for these programmes, please contact us by mailing to email@example.com.
The costs are specified per programme. The costs cover guided tour supervision / workshop instruction. Workshops have to be prepared and cleared up afterwards, which is why an additional hour is charged per half day. The costs of materials used in workshops are also charged.
An admission fee of € 3 is also charged per student. Admission is free for accompanying adults.
The maximum group size for a guided tour or workshop is 15 students.
- To book an excursion, fill in the booking request form. Museum excursions must be booked at least two weeks in advance.
- When making a booking for several classes at the same time or an extensive programme, we advise making all the necessary arrangements earlier because of the limited amount of space.
- All guided tours and workshops are given in Dutch. Workshops and guided tours in English can be organised on request.
