This weavings are part of a research to (colour) transition zones in weaves, as part of the Weavers Werkstatt.
Weavers Werkstatt is an initiative from Jongeriuslab/Hella Jongerius to stimulate the development of weaving knowledge among designers. Over the three months that Hella Jongerius’ exhibition Interlace took place at Lafayette Anticipations, a selected group of designers was invited to use the loom for a personal research project part of Weavers Werkstatt.
Through the invitation to be part of the Weavers Werkstatt I could work for some time on a digital jacquard loom to study making fluid and soft transitions in graphical weaves, following the kasuri weaving research in the project NAWA.
These designers participated at the Weavers Werkstatt at Anticipations from June-September 2019: Edith van Berkel, Bless (Desiree Heiss and Ines Kaag), Brigitte Dalmaijer, Hella Jongerius, Jos Klarenbeek, Aliki van der Kruijs, Sarah Meyers & Laura Fügmann, Annie Millican, Vera de Pont.
My participation to the Weavers Werkstatt is made possible with the support of Stroom Den Haag
