This event is a journey through contemporary textile world of high fashion, embroidery, crochet and knitted graffiti.
The association Eloge du Fil is organising its 4th Biennial of Textile Arts. The uniqueness of this event transforms Avenches into the capital of the arts of thread, an opportunity to make a link between artisanal know-how and the artistic expressions that are inspired and emancipated by it. Quilting, lace, embroidery, crochet, weaving, knitting, paintings, sculptures, these creations are a journey through the contemporary textile world. Eloge du Fil invites talented international and local artists to promote the booming textile art. The exhibitions take place in one place, the historic city centre of Avenches, but allow visitors to explore different premises. In addition, the central street of Avenches is sublimated thanks to textile creations of urban art (Street Art) made by volunteers from all over Switzerland and even beyond.
