Another social worker in the profession “Textile designer in the craft industry, specializing in felting” On July 14, 2015, Germany’s second textile designer successfully completed her apprenticeship exam in the craft trade in felting.
Susanne Breuling comes from the Black Forest and decided in the
middle of her life after a professional reorientation for an
apprenticeship as a textile designer in the craft industry, specializing
in felting. In her search for a training company she came via BIBB
(Federal Institute for Vocational Training in Bonn) in the Palatinate.
She started in January with Sigrid Bannier, co-author of the new job
profile, member of the HWK Pfalz, member of the examination board of the
HWK Rhein-Main and member of the Federal Association for the Arts and
Crafts and last but not least chairman of the non-profit Association of
German-speaking Felters 2013 her education.
The training was closely based on the training regulations for this profession and led to the ‘external journeyman’s examination’, an officially recognized degree, in which one does not necessarily have to attend the vocational school in Plauen. Nevertheless, it was necessary to keep the learning content of 3 years of normal vocational school present.
Susanne Breuling will start her own business as of 01. August 2015 and will open a workshop shop in Schiltach in the Black Forest and offer a course program.
We are happy with her and her trainer about passing the exam. We are convinced that it represents an extraordinary enrichment for the professional felt craft.
