A week ago, we had a fun and rewarding weekend doing workshops at the TextielMuseum. There were two workshops powered by us: design your own sustainable packaging and design your own fabric design.

At the lasercutter, people could use Magic Box (our parametric design tool) to create there own packaging. We used a humble material -corrugated cardboard- and turned it into something precious, worth giving and worth keeping.

At another location in the TextielLab was a workshop making textile designs with Repper Pro. People could take a photo of anything, turn it into a pattern and print it on cotton. We don’t have the photos yet, but when you got the results, we’ll share them here on our blog!

We were featured on Brabant10, as part of the coverage of the Textiel Weekend. Check out the below video for our 5 minutes of fame on Brabant television:
