There is no doubt about the fact, that skilled hands of weavers had to work until late night quite frequently, so that the fi nal tapestries would glorify Jindřichův Hradec worldwide at the beginning of 20th century. Particularly in 1910, Marie Hoppe Teinitzerová established her workshops for handcraft ed weaving and restoration of tapestries. Aft er more than one hundred years the unique handcraft ing technice received dignifi ed background in the reconstructed building of former chateau brewery. For visitors there is prepared an exposition of the Museum of Jindřichohradecko titled Life and Work of Marie Hoppe Teinitzerová, as well as the so-called live exposition, where skilled weavers let the visitors to unveil mysteries of making and restoration of tapestries. Families with children are welcomed. Several surprises wait for them on the playground and in the cinema. Curious visitors may also try weaving themselves.
