When the clubbing becomes three-dimensional

When the clubbing becomes three-dimensional

"The idea was that we carry our spikes to auben", tells school and museum director beate agten at the unveiling of a very special work of art. It took 600 hours of handiwork in nordhalben to create a rose from old fil yarn, copper wire and copper sheeting, which now adorns the rose island. With a great deal of patience and love for the lump, 14 women were busy turning an idea into reality. "The whole process took about three years, but it was worth it", beate agten is convinced.

Painstaking detail work

Between 30 and 150 pairs of lobs were sometimes needed at the same time to create the rose, which has a diameter of about 80 centimeters. The initiator describes how tedious the work was in places: "the copper sheet was drilled out and then the points were sewn onto the copper sheet." Hobby blacksmith bernd daum provided the frame for the rose.
At the museum, visitors learned how knocking works and what can come of it. The art of lace making is no longer limited to lace doilies and window curtains. A whole 2733 exhibits in an incredible variety hang in the exhibition "alterfil – that’s tops – creative without limits".
Even experienced potters are impressed by the artistic motifs. Beate agten: "many have participated in the exhibition. The youngest was a seven-year-old from nordhalben, the oldest was 93." Long time ago, the club changed from two-dimensional to three-dimensional, she continues. Christmas tree balls or easter eggs, for example, were perfect for this purpose. The exhibition is open until 3. On view at the kloppelmuseum in june.
