MMU Fashion and Textiles workshop


A 1-day workshop for the MMU Fashion and Textiles 1st year students as part of their mysterious “Unit X” module. I talked about my work and approaches to design using both the punchcard and hack approaches, demonstrating the machines and the img2track software. The students have been developing designs and research in response to the theme of fairgrounds, so we created punchcard and digital knit experiments using the Brother KH881 and KH950i. Designs created included a haunted face, an explosion of colour, and the rollercoaster framework structure.
