The Textile Academy Bootcamp was held at FabLab Barcelona from the 20th to the 24th of February. This intensive five-day course explored new possibilities of the fashion system and manufacturing.
At FabLab Castelfranco Veneto we attended the on-line lectures and, among the different creative ideas, we concentrated our attention on the "reconfigurable modular systems", geometrical modules that can be assembled in order to create a pattern.
We obtained the modules by laser cutting a piece of fabric (in the specific faux leather).
In addition to the cut of the fabric we experimented a "drawing" effect using the raster function of the laser cutting machine and playing with the values of power and speed.
Once having the modular pattern assembled, we added some sparkling points, sewing some LEDs on another piece of fabric, placed underneath the faux leather.
