For this year’s Advent season, the European Capital of Culture Chemnitz 2025 is grouping together participatory activities in Chemnitz and the cultural region in a brochure entitled “Maker Advent”: from Christmas woodturning, to lace-making, baking, carving, knitting, printing, or drawing, to soldering, lasering, programming, or 3D printing – everything is allowed and, above all, encouraged!
The brochure will be available in Chemnitz and the entire cultural region at tourist information offices, adult education centers, libraries, city halls, cultural institutions, open workshops, and online via the Capital of Culture channels as a digital version. In this way, it creates visibility for the countless workshops and studios in Chemnitz and the region and connects people through the theme of Christmas.
Beyond pre-Christmas consumption, the brochure motivates people to create their own products and learn new (craft) skills in the process. The courses and workshops help to strengthen the maker mentality and the sense of community and at the same time inspire guests in the city and region for local traditions and cultural heritage.
