For 15 years the Werkraum Bregenzerwald, Hand.Werk.Haus Salzkammergut, and Textiles Zentrum Haslach centres for craftsmanship in Austria, run by traditional craftspeople, have been working with international artists, educational and scientific bodies, and craft businesses to help safeguard their practices for future generations. Governed by associations, the centres offer training programmes for the public and exhibitions involving local and international artists, as well as forums for exchange and partnerships between practitioners and industry to safeguard the practices important to community identity.
