Bauhaus Weimar: Student
Preliminary Courses, Weaving
Burg Burg Giebichenstein
Corona Krause, born in Coronata near Genoa in 1906, came to the Bauhaus in Weimar at the age of 18 in 1924, where she studied weaving. A year later she did not take part in the move to Dessau, but continued her studies at Burg Giebichenstein in Halle. Corona Krause then worked as a textile and fashion designer. She has a daughter with the artist Friedrich Stichs. Krause died in Hanover in 1948. Her preliminary course work ‘Floating Sculpture’ was illustrated by her teacher László Moholy-Nagy in his Bauhaus book ‘From Material to Architecture’.
