Digital workshop – Weaving Design 2 or Knitting Design 2
Students acquire knowledge of multiple and Jacquard weaves respectively of Jacquard and form knitting. They develop product-related designs that are formally and technically persuasive and can be realised as intended. Materials are selected accordingly and an appropriate colour scheme is implemented with the help of digital weaving resp. knitting programmes. The results are presented in light of specific applications, using the correct technical terms and relevant illustrations. Students produce a leaflet about the conditions required for ecological textile processes and products, and discuss current design issues in English.Lecturers: Marion Becella (Weaving Design), Christa Michel (Knitting Design), Susan Curtis, Daniela Zimmermann, Tina Moor, Tina Tomovic, Roberto Riedo, Marco Paniz and guests.
In partnership – Design 2
Students given a set theme for a specific target group produce a design collection that works well as coordinates and in a variety of colour schemes. They process design topics digitally, in keeping with the general conditions in the partner company. The collection is presented to clients and so exposed to market criteria. Students discuss the economic impact of textile processes and products at different points in the value chain and write short texts in English on current design issues. Lecturers: Brigitt Egloff, Susan Curtis, Daniela Zimmermann, Tina Moor, Tina Tomovic, Marco Paniz and guests.
