    Textile Summer School in Kyoto Japan


    Open call for KYOTO Design Lab Textiles Summer School 2020 is out. The deadline is on the May 7th.


    It is the midst of crazy situation, and it maybe hard to think of the summer now… But if you are interested in visiting Chirimen weavers in Kyotango, one of the Japan’s traditional textile techniques and learn about their skills, participate in hands-on workshops and prototype your design ideas, perhaps this is for you? The school include 5 days of intense hands-on workshop on e-textiles by Mika (KOBAKANT), or 5 days of intense hands-on workshop on heat transfer and digital print techiniques by Kangan Arora.

    The school will take place from August 17 to August 28, 2020. The school is organized by Julia Cassim at the Design Lab, Kyoto Institute of Technology
