Fabric Station

The place to experiment and work on innovations in textiles and other fashion-related materials

At the Fabric Station we focus on innovations in material and machinery that bridge traditional textile and garment construction techniques with digitalisation and sustainability.

The station is open to any student who wishes to develop textile or (fashion) products, create new materials or recycle old ones. From weaving your own fabric to drafting and sewing a garment, at the Fabric Station we have the tools and knowledge to support you in materialising your ideas.

In the Fabric Station you can:

  • Learn about all aspects of pattern making, making garments, draping and sewing.
  • Render digital images to textiles using our digital embroidery machine and digital loom.
  • Familiarise yourself with textile dyeing techniques such as batik and shibori.
  • Make a carpet using the tufting technique.
  • Experiment with various textile techniques such as felting, knitting and weaving.
