The painter and weaver “Grete” Willers (1883-1977) studied at the Bauhaus Weimar from 1920 to 1922. She was given her own studio at the Bauhaus Dessau in 1927 and made weaving her profession. Willers taught the Bauhaus idea to her students as an artist and teacher and remained closely associated with the Bauhaus pedagogy of Johannes Itten and the art theory of Paul Klee. After the war, Willers was one of the Bauhaus ambassadors.
