Circular Textile

It’s October a.k.a. autumn a.k.a. sweater weather! Time to produce your own warm and comfy jumper and learn some handicrafts on the side.

This knitting workshop is a collaboration between Creative City Lab and Warme Truiendag. Together they join forces to raise awareness for the amount of clothing we’re wasting and thermo regulation - how warm sweaters help saving our climate. Clothing that could turn into… your new friend for fall!

Carolien Evers from Warme Truiendag designed a pattern that we will use in our workshops. One that is super easy to follow. Your two hands can do this. Conny Groenewegen, winner of the the Mercedes-Benz Dutch Fashion Award in 2011, designed a unique Wool² sweater of recycled wool. In the lab you can support the upcycling movement and see how this sweater is machine-made.

Now let’s all raise our… knitting needles.
