Experimental Yarns. Online Workshop 16 October 2020

Experimental Yarns (Part 1): From Fiber to Yarn: A Discussion between Textile, Biology and Design.

Experimental Yarns is planned as an interdisciplinary exchange on the idea of fibers and yarn: How are fibers and yarns formed and how do they perform inside a material system? By discussing and comparing approaches from specific disciplines—such as Textile Technology, Biomaterials and Design— we aim to transgress the disciplinary boundaries and explore new fields for research and application.

We cordially invite researchers from the Cluster of Excellence "Matters of Activity. Image Space Material" (MoA) and KHB students to join the event and discuss the input.
