Textile Academy Bootcamp ARMENIA

We are thrilled to announce the Textile Academy 2024 Bootcamp in Armenia!

This May, join us for an intensive week of hands-on workshops with international experts and locals, cultural visits and social events, distributed across the country, among the cities of Yerevan, Dilijan and Gyumri.ūüŹě

Together with Fabricademy, during the week participants will explore crafts, digital and bio fabrication through a series of activities hosted at Fab Lab Armenia and in specific locations.

Participants will engage in various traditional practices, such as weaving kilim and rugs, felting, and dyeing wool using locally sourced ingredients. They will also delve into ancient techniques like batik, cyanotype, and linotype, merging craftsmanship with digital fabrication technology and DIY machines.

Moreover, they will learn how to biofabricate biomaterials as sustainable alternatives to the current ones. They will apply principles of digital and computational design for 3D printing on textiles and develop 3D models for leather molding.

In addition, participants will explore the world of soft robotics and wearable technology. The focus will be on creating inflatable designs and soft robots, while also learning about conductive materials and crafting soft sensors and circuits for wearable applications.

Limited seats available.

Textile Academy Bootcamp 2019

This year¬īs annual bootcamp will happen in ICELAND!

We believe that fashion education should be updated, embrace multidisciplinarity and change the current model of fast fashion to customized and sustainable. We love making , experimenting and innovating using hands on bottom up approaches and new technology. In this 40h course, we have included all the new tools a fashion designer should learn! If you are an educator, a professional or a student this is the course for you!
Reserve your place here 

The annual Fabricademy Bootcamp this year is focusing on blending traditional industrial processes with new technologies.  We learn from the contemporary industry with factory visits around Iceland and workshops at the Icelandic Textile Research Center. We explore materials , tools and digital fabrication technologies at the Fab Lab and design for a sustainable and inspired future.

Project development in groups every afternoon .

Fab Textiles Bootcamp

Bootcamp with Icelandic teachers:
Introduction to soft fabrication and the use of digital fabrication applied on textiles and fashion
New mediums of production and accessibility to new technologies are changing the way we learn, design, produce and consume. Fashion education and the industry are still in the process of adaptation to the new technologies and the open source culture. Innovative processes and multidisciplinary synergies are defining the new era, which calls upon the awareness of the way things are made and the opportunities that the new tools offer to innovate and reimagine the future.
This¬†bootcamp with¬†FATEX –¬†Association of apparel and textile secondary school teachers focused¬†on transmitting Digital Fabrication and New Technologies applied in Fashion. Digital fabrication allows us to experiment with the way we design, produce and consume fashion introducing the participants to 3D modelling, parametric design, 3D printing, new techniques and materials.

Day 1 (6 hours)
Presentation of the Roadmap of the fab textiles projects.
Hands on use of laser cutting technology for fabrics, from 2D patterns to 3D structures. The participants were introduced to 2D design programs and file preparation for laser cutting fabrics. A great variety of different fabrics was tested and a catalogue of speeds and power for each fabric was generated for cutting and laser engraving. The participants brought as well local fabrics from Iceland such as fish leather, felt, cow leather and horse hair in order to learn how these materials can be used with digital fabrication technologies and apply the techniques back in their schools.


Day 2 (6 hours)
Molding Felt and CNC milling
Hands on work
Day 3 (6 hours)
Introduction to 3D printing applied in fashion
The exercise was a introduction to 3D modelling through parametric design using Rhinoceros and Grasshopper and file preparation steps and tips for 3D printing. The technique implies the use of fabric on the 3D printer platform where the flexible filament adheres. The grasshopper definition generates curly volumes that vary in width and height. If the fabric used on the platform is stretched the curly pattern can impose the deformation of the fabric into a 3D structure.
This tutorial gives an insight into the correct choice for fabric and appropriate 3D geometries that give properties to the soft structure.

Day 4 (6 hours)
Integrating soft circuits in the garment
Basic Tilt sensor with LED circuit
Participants used basic electronic components such as conductive thread, LEDS, battery and tilt sensor in order to make a small circuit that was integrated into a laser cut bracelet pattern.
