Art/Literary - Art, Arts & Crafts, Painting / textile screen printing
German term or phrase: Weberei
An artist is advertising his art work for textile screen printing applications (t-shirts, etc.). I may need to ask the client for clarification, but would like to ask you folks if you know whether embroidery is the most likely technique implied by Weberei.

Google has nothing in the way of "textile prints and weaving", but that is inconclusive.

Weaving is the logical translation of "Weberei", so I'm doubtful here, but Duden also provides "webarbeit", in turn defined as "Näharbeit", as a seldomly used meaning of "weberei", perhaps this fits your context better.

"textile prints and embroidery" do get some hits, but again it's inconclusive.
