During the first part of this course, you will gain a basic knowledge of available materials and structures and learn to make informed, responsible choices in textile design.

After exploring how to make a textile do its job from a practical perspective, you will focus on the aesthetic considerations, including  fabric manipulation, surface design (printing and embroidery), and nets/lacelike fabrics (cut work, devoré).

You will then choose a situation for which to design a textile and produce a mini project outlining the reasons for your choices, illustrated with samples.

The course will be held in Milan
