The White City Center - Idelson 29, Tel Aviv,
School of the City at Liebling Haus is launching new workshops for kids and adults and celebrates the 120th anniversary of Anni Albers, the first lady of the Bauhaus.
Weaver, artist, and groundbreaking textile designer Anni Albers was born on June 12, 1899, 120 years ago. She began her studies at the Bauhaus School as a student in the textile workshop, which she later headed – one of the very few women holding such a position at that time. “Creating is the most intense excitement one can come to know,” said Albers, who researched and developed traditional and industrial weaving techniques and incorporated modern concepts of the Bauhaus, which led to the expansion of textile design and its inclusion in other artistic disciplines. Her works are exhibited in museums around the world, and the books she has written are cornerstones of textile design.
Her birthday is an opportunity to celebrate weaving, and empower the local textile community in a series of special events:
16:30-18:30 – Open Studio at Max & Tony – kids and adults are welcome to experiment with weaving.
18:30-19:00 – an introduction of designer Haim Hachimian, presentation of a weaving class he will teach at the Liebling Haus in March, and the launch of carpenter Dror Kasher’s handmade wooden looms, sold at the Liebling Haus shop.
19:00–20:30 – a series of short lectures by young textile designers.
