Bauhaus Master

Gunta Stölzl was the one and only woman Bauhaus master. She played a pivotal role in the development of the weaving workshop. Stölzl was responsible for great change in the weaving department, moving from pictorial to modern design. In applying modern art to weaving and experimenting with synthetic materials, Stölzl improved the technical instruction to include mathematics. Under her direction, the Bauhaus weaving workshop became one of the most successful facilities.
