The Workshop Today

Source: Homepage:

"We are a group of dedicated craftspeople, who are taking our future into our own hands.  Together, we want to shape the future of handicrafts and trade in the Bregenzerwald ."

The Bregenzerwald Workshop follows a centuries old handicraft tradition.

Modern businesses with new technology have developed from the groups of craftsmen, organised by the guilds, and even in those days, sent to far away places to work.  

A new, modern form of syndication was founded in the workshop in 1999.  It is organised as a union and offers its 100 members, institutionalised support in the areas of member service, product and design innovation, training and further education as well as building culture.  Events, discussions, exhibitions and documentations are all co-ordinated and managed in a contact office in Egg.  The office is a virtual and real platform that forms an information hub for members and clients alike.
