Weaving mill with museum exhibition

A small private museum with a large weaving and art workshop in the „House under the Ash Tree“ in Trutnov - Voletiny is a place where you can spend an amazing weekend full of creativity. You can learn what really happened to fairy tale mole character “Krteček” and his trousers, knit your own cord using a sprig of flax, try to make a few strikes on a weaving loom or buy a tourist stamp. You can get there by car or on foot.

Weaving mill with museum exhibition

In the Weaving Mill with a museum exposition, you will find the equipment of many workshops of almost forgotten crafts today. The most important theme is weaving. You will learn a lot about the trade and you will be able to put it to practise on antique machines using a few sprigs of flax. You will yourself make a string for good luck. To the fabric stretched on a loom you could try to add a few rows of your own (strikes). You will be amazed to find out how fine a thread a skilled spinner can achieve on a spinning wheel. The owner of the museum is the holder of the Master of Traditional Handicraft Production Award in the field of weaving, spinning, and wool and flax processing for Hradec Králové Region in 2019.

Art workshop

Part of the weaving mill is an art workshop. Here, visitors will make in a short time their own souvenir, such as a soap, a felt wool angel or paint a ceramic mug or T-shirt. It is also possible to come to a particular weekend workshop dedicated to one of the crafts. Weekends with loom weaving, sewing, weaving baskets out of wicker or rattan are held there. Some of the courses are classified as accredited training courses.
