The Textiles and Materiality Cluster presents: a Jacquard Weaving Information Session
October 26th at 6h30 pm in EV 10-730
Using the Jacquard loom, digital imagery can be hand-woven into tangible cloth. Inherently interdisciplinary, the Jacquard loom offers innumerable possibilities for bridging media in your practice.
At this information session, find out more about the exciting medium of digital weaving and the different ways to access the Jacquard loom at the Institute or to get a piece woven.
Come and discuss your possible projects with us!
