Textile Workshop. 23rd-28th November 2016. Organised by the students of Walls and Space

Textile Workshop

23rd-28th november

walls and space

(please bring spindle, threads or any fabrics if you want) 

a group from walls and space have met and planned a textiles course.

we have decided to split the course into two weeks, one before christmas (from the 23rd to the 28th of November) and one in the new year. 

the first week we have structured as a step by step experimentation with making fabrics from fibres.

we will have an hour at the beginning of each day where people can bring texts, videos or present something they feel is relevant for the course or something they are personally interested in that is textile related. (email me if you would like to present something) 

MAXIMUM of 20 people so please email me by tuesday the 8th of november!
