Weavers Werkstatt - textile research by Hella Jongerius

Jongeriuslab

€ 24.000

At the invitation of Lafayette Anticipations, Hella Jongerius and her design studio Jongeriuslab (Paris) will be transforming the rooms of Anticipations into an experimental workspace from June to September 2019. In the Weavers Werkstatt project, Jongeriuslab is collaborating with design students and textile designers to carry out practice-oriented textile research. Within the framework of this research, Weavers Werkstatt is promoting knowledge transfer between starting and more experienced textile designers and the development of expertise to offer innovation and solutions to the challenges that the textile sector is facing. The Anticipations programme facilitates the development of new works by international makers of modern art, design and fashion. In this publicly accessible workspace, designers from various countries and with various levels of experience carry out hands-on weaving research and experiments. In this way they introduce the public to relevant aspects of the textile production process to create awareness and (renewed) appreciation for textiles.
