Because we want to share what we know and discover with tomorrow’s producers and designers, we host master classes right here on our own grounds. This makes our small-scale process completely transparent, from goat to garment and from sheep to sweater. We believe this transparency offers valuable insights to anyone involved in any material’s supply chain. Between 09:00 and 17:00 we take participants through all the steps, from animal friendly farming, via sustainable yielding and processing, to a locally produced and fairly priced piece. It goes without saying that the master classes include working on our knitting machines and watching the full documentary From Goat To Garment.

To maximize positive effects, the master classes are mainly aimed at professionals (we want to promote wool to the whole world, so all interested groups are welcome!). Students, teachers, designers, and product developers see their industry from a different angle. They learn how to make conscious decisions when working with wool.
Are you a designer, teacher, student, brand owner, product developer, department store manager, fashion editor, or any other kind of fashion professional who wants to learn more about sustainable wool production? Or are you looking for a meaningful and different kind of group activity to embark on with your friends or colleagues?

We offer the masterclass for both professionals and individuals.

We start the day at 9 o'clock for a short introduction, then you get to know our merino sheep, Texel sheep and angora goats. We take you to the stables where we will tell a lot about the different qualities, properties and applications of wool and also show our documentary “from goat to garment”. After a farmer's lunch we enter the knitting studio, where our knitting specialist teaches you on the knitting machine. You can choose what you want to make and of course take it home at the end of the day.
