Imagining Textile Tools celebrates community dialogue and creative exploration around the past and future possibilities of textile technology. Portland Textile Month’s 2019 theme is Exchange; to celebrate this theme, tool makers, textile folks, and the curious are invited for collaborative design. Together, we’ll speculate and imagine new tools!
Session 2: held at Make+Think+Code
Themes collected from Session 1 (Aug. 10th @ Textile Hive) will be presented as design prompts. Come ready to prototype and play. Lo-fi prototyping tools and pizza provided. This event is free. Capacity is limited to 10, RSVP is needed.
Ideas and prototypes gathered from co-design sessions will be included in an exhibit on display during the Community Day event of the Textile Connections symposium. All participants will be credited as co-creators.
The Textile Connections symposium is organized by independent curator Annin Barrett, with speakers sponsored by Columbia FiberArts Guild and generously hosted at PNCA’s Mediatheque lecture hall. Community Day: October 27th, Sunday, 12noon-4pm.
