The European Textile Network (ETN), to which the spanish artist María Muñoz belongs, is an international association founded in 1991 with the aim of promoting exchange between nations and strengthening European community spirit through the textile medium.
Every two years, a large international conference takes place in different countries at locations with a textile background.
Textile artists Daniel Giannone, Meredith Jackson, Leo Chiachio, Susan Avila and María Muñoz
From 28th until 31st July 2019 the 19th ETN-conference is held at the Textile Centre Haslach, a multifunctional place in the north of Austria, where museum, education and production meet under the roof of an old textile mill.
Every July the traditional linen weavers´ village Haslach is host to an international textile symposium, called Textile Kultur Haslach with many workshops, exhibitions and a weavers market. The 2019 ETN conference will be embedded in this event.
Accompanying the ETN conference there are shows of textile exhibitions throughout the region. Visiting these exhibitions and traveling through our beautiful rural region will make you experience the ‘Garden of Eden’ here in Haslach and surrounding area.
