2007: first costumed visits to medieval markets
2012: first display at museum events, for example at Landesmuseum Detmold, AFM Oerlinghausen, Wallmuseum Oldenburg. Displays had different themes with textile work, like making cloth, but also the production of bone dice in the 12th and 13th century and the project „Cologne chest“, which is about the reconstruction of bone work dating to the 12th century.
As a handweaver, I am involved in the reworking of historic textiles.
