Wool Work: An Introductory Workshop to Working with Wool
Always thought of wool as a hot, itchy, old-fashioned fibre? Can’t see wool featuring in your avant-garde or high fashion designs? The Woolmark Company wants to change your perception!
This February, meet Merino wool – 100% natural, renewable, and biodegradable. Fashion designers love this unique fibre for its quality and versatility. Nothing else feels, looks, or wears like Merino wool.
Join The Assembly and The Woolmark Company for an introduction to all things wool exclusively tailored for the African designer. We’ll take you through the benefits of the fibre; how it’s grown, how it’s manufactured and the innovative applications within the fashion and textiles industry.
In this workshop, The Woolmark Company will help you gain a better understanding of how to select, source and apply the appropriate use of wool in your creative projects and designs.
You can look forward to learning the following at the workshop:
- What is Wool?
- Why Wool?
- Manufacturing Wool
- Wool Innovations
- Sourcing Wool
