Workshop – Bernat Klein: Creativity & Entrepreneurship

Workshop – Bernat Klein: Creativity & Entrepreneurship


This workshop explores the creative partnership between Margaret and Bernat Klein, and their shared dedication in developing the international brand of Bernat Klein. Integrated practical sessions explore colour ideas, with an opportunity for informal discussion on individual creative practice.

Aimed at early career practitioners and small to medium enterprises practicing in the creative industries, this immersive workshop will look at the work of Bernat Klein, celebrating colour, texture, design and sustainability through creative activities.

Practical sessions will encourage the spontaneous exploration of colour through yarn wraps, colour threading, colour combs and colour throwing.

During the workshop Maija shares her creative process, and the way in which the work of Bernat and Margaret Klein has inspired her use of colour and pattern in developing new design ideas. Some key topics explored in the workshop are:

Why did Bernat Klein create a textile business?

What influenced his vision?

What textile innovations could help re-envision the way textiles are deigned and made today?

All materials are supplied.

One of a series of exhibitions and events organised by the Bernat Klein Foundation in collaboration with partners including Live Borders to celebrate the life and career of Bernat Klein, textile designer, artist and colourist (1922 – 2014).
