The Fabricademy focuses on combining the knowledge of traditional and future craftsmanship to work towards new ways of designing and producing for the slowly changing textile and fashion-industry. We will investigate how the textile and fashion industry can benefit from new technologies, processes and business models.

The Fabricademy, textile and technology academy is for fashion, textile and material designers, researchers, artists, engineers and all creatives interested in exploring topics surrounding the textile and clothing, working inside and outside the industry. The workshops will give you the tools and the shared knowledge to develop your own in depth research project in the TextileLab. The lessons will touch upon topics such as textile dyeing with living bacteria, digital pattern drafting, 3D scanning, 3D printing and textile manipulations and material development.

At TextileLab Amsterdam we focus on the unethical and environmental unfriendly realities of the current textile and clothing industry. At Waag we want to explore alternatives for both the changing values in the industries as innovate the design and production process. With TCBL new ways of designing, making and co-working within innovative production processes and business models in the European textile and clothing-industry are explored.
