fiber to cloth

  • GDS workshop Peralta at 16 Street West Oakland

In this workshop we'll detail the process from fiber to textile, show you loads of samples and dig into the  terminology that will deeply improve your experience as a textile user. We'll discuss woven fabrics vs. knit fabrics and how each of these are constructed, and will demystify the major fiber types through a step-by-step introduction to cotton, wool, silk, linen and their man-made counterparts. During the class you'll put together a useful swatch kit to reference in the future whenever a little refresher is  desired.

This workshop is perfect for anyone wanting to improve their knowledge of textiles no matter the trade.

Workshop cost ($26) includes everything!
