Craftivist, digital strategist e lecturer / Wemake
Co-founder of WeMake – makerspace and fablab in Milan since 2014 – she graduated in philosophy and formed in the world of digital communication strategy. Since the '00s she has investigated the boundaries and potentialities of open source in fashion and design in various projects by interweaving them with digital manufacturing. From 2013 to 2017 she worked for Arduino, dealing with digital strategy.
The training course will carry participants in the theoretical and executive understanding of digitizing the modular production and a new approach to design and production of accessories and clothing items. We create a shortcut between the worlds of fashion and making, we explore together new possibilities, imagining new professional figures resulting from contamination and multi-disciplinary approach to design.
NOTE: You are required to be familiar with the use of computer and / or graphics softwares.
Self-made items or accessories produced by the working group during the workshop.
In the 16 hours of workshop you'll be trained to discover how with simple two-dimensional geometries and modular joints you can create unique and original accessories and clothing. By using a vector software and a laser cutting machine , you'll explore the three-dimensional potential in the construction of regular modules which are then assembled without seams creating unpublished tassellation. All materials are included in the enrollment fee.
Art and Fashion tassellation — Vector graphic basic elements - Tassellation examples - Work on templates with graphical elements to use (two-dimensional polygons and possible engravings) - Prototyping Module
Group work - Hands-on:
Prototyping and assembly testing - Design of item / accessory and cutting - Item assembling - Group Presentation - Online Documentation Release
