Guided tour Industrialisation

The history of the textile industry in Tilburg

What was it like, in the earlier days, in a textile factory? How were textiles produced before there were factories? What does the term ‘Kruikenzeiker’ (jug pisser) mean? During this tour, all these questions will be answered. You will visit the Woollen Blanket Factory with the steam engine and the DamaskWeaving and special attention will be paid to the building, which originally was a textile factory.

For MBO schools with a special fashion and textile department we can make customised programs.

Students can, for example, weave on the hand loom, knit on the flatbed knitting machine and embroider by hand or on the machine. The programs are all about learning to apply several textile techniques, experiment with different weave bindings, knit and embroider stitches and the use of contemporary and extraordinary yarns.
