Textile Design Workshop
at Berlin Opera Foundation

Umkirch, November 29th, 2021

Gerriets, together with the company Haussmann Theatre Colours, held a half-day workshop on "Basic knowledge in painting and designing textiles" on November 17th, 2021 in the painting hall of the Berlin Opera Foundation (Stiftung Oper in Berlin) at Wriezener Train Station in Berlin.

In the workshop, the 30 stage painters and sculptors present were able to learn from numerous practical examples which colours and fillers are suitable for the various materials and why the combination of Haussmann Theatre Colours works particularly well on Gerriet's materials.

Numerous scrims, different nettle fabrics, stage cloths such as the new CORFU PLUS stage cloth and various PVC dance floors from the Gerriets portfolio were presented. The workshop was rounded off by a joint lunch with a lively exchange between the participants. This workshop is now also planned for other cities.
