Our April studio visit will take place at Studio HILO, a place to admire precious weavings and spinning machines.
Studio HILO is a Berlin-based studio for digital textile education. They developed a digital spinning machine pretty much like a 3D-printer: The open-source spinning machine HILO is controlled by a software, which allows users to design and produce their own local yarn.
Studio HILO concentrates not only on developing an open source spinning machine but also a community of designers, researchers, small manufacturers and artists for local yarn manufacturing. The studio offers workshops, trainings and cooperations on sustainable yarn manufacturing and design, open hardware machines and digital spinning processes.
We will give a textile life cycle talk, showcase the HILO software and hardware and give you an introduction on how to spin your own yarn.
Sara & Natalija are looking forward to meet you!
