We cordially invite you to Part 1 of our Experimental Yarns Workshop Series: “From Fiber to Yarn: A discussion between Textile, Biology and Design”

 Online Workshop, 16 October 2020  (on Zoom)

 Experimental Yarns is planned as an interdisciplinary exchange on the idea of fibers and yarn: How are fibers and yarns being formed and how do they perform inside a material system? By discussing and comparing approaches from specific disciplines—such as Textile Technology, Biomaterials and Design— we aim to transgress the disciplinary boundaries and explore new fields for research and application. We cordially invite researchers from the Cluster, KHB students and anyone else interested to join the event and discuss the input.
