Scope

Textile academy is an interdisciplinary course based on hands-on learning and a bottom up approach. Divided into two trimesters, the first one (September to December) is made of weekly global lectures on skills, tools&processes, where each student's weekly assignments are reviewed globally. During the first 3 months there are also scheduled talks from experts and practitioners for a further exploration of each topic. The second trimester is focused on the development of a final personal project.
