Process & Production
This colour material weave sample was made as a part of the Craft Hub residency at Design School Kolding in Denmark. Here 14 external practitioners were invited to engage with techniques used in textile design to openly discuss matters of color and material across craft discipline.
The field of textile design is often seen in collaboration with other craft disciplines, such as textiles for clothing or interior. To introduce others to try a selection of techniques, opened a discussion of the role of color and materials in relation to product experiences – further it led to a playful engagement and a broader discussion on creativity through making.
The workshops were facilitated by textile designers and workshop managers from the textile department at Design School Kolding Signe Fink and Iben Høj drawing on their many years of experience in textile printing and knitwear design respectively.
The first workshop started with a short presentation on colors and how we tend to have favorite ones. These individual color pallets were challenged through guided exercises to unfold perspectives of selecting colorways – for one thing randomness principles and methods. The introduced principles and methods were throughout the workshop series explored applying various techniques. With a material-based approach, participants experimented with developing ideas within color, material and surface design.
