The weaving workshop is our oldest workshop. It was established as early as 1965, the year after the founding of Land of Legends when the first attempts at working with ancient spinning and weaving techniques were made.
There have been a number of textile finds from Danish antiquity which show that the spinners and weavers of the past were very skilled. Much of the clothing found has been woven with such fine thread and in such beautiful patterns and colours that it must impress anyone seeing them today.
The staff of the weaving workshop are all highly professional and care deeply about communicating their insight to a broader public.
Visit the weaving workshop and have an exciting dialog with our weavers and spinners.
I 2007 and 2008, the event "Past challenges" focused on the theme "Dress and fashion". From the 28th of July to the 3rd of August, researchers from all over the world gathered at Land of Legends - Lejre to carry out their experimental projects about clothing and textiles.
