In this workshop, you will explore digital workflows for textile design. Outputting to WOVNS, a platform for Jacquard woven textile production, discussion will be centered around the changing landscape of textile development as digital fabrication technologies evolve. You will learn how to create a production ready textile design file in a repeating or tapestry style layout using the WOVNS platform. You will have the option of sending your file for production and receive your own custom Jacquard woven fabric.
The WOVNS workshop is open to all. Familiarity with Adobe Suite (Photoshop and / or Illustrator) is helpful as we will be designing in these programs. Please plan to bring a laptop, preferably with Adobe Suite (Photoshop and / or Illustrator) installed. There are 4 additional computers in the lab with Adobe Suite installed, should some participants need. WOVNS Swatch Blankets will be available for use during the workshop, to aid in the digital design process and anticipated result as woven fabric.
Fee:$20 General Admission
Free for CCA students and community (School and/or community IDs will be checked and verified to receive complimentary access.) Participants will have the option of submitting their design files for production at the end of the workshop. The cost is $45 - 48 / yard.
For those of you new to the WOVNS company, WOVNS is a textile technology platform that is changing the way textiles are produced.The platform allows designers to develop and order custom woven textiles in quantities as small as a single yard. In the era of digital fabrication platforms, desktop 3D printers and CNC machines, the goal of WOVNS is to revolutionize textile production, creating access and immediacy.
