Digital Knitting with Kniterate

We offer an immersive workshop where you'll learn everything you need to know about the Kniterate machine and its design app.

From setup to stitching, our comprehensive course covers it all. You'll delve into essential theory, but the main focus of our time is dedicated to hands-on practice with the design app, operating the machine, and crafting your very own samples.

Conducted by: Textile Prototyping Lab

The Open Source HILO E-Spinning Wheel, an electric spinning wheel, is ideal for beginners to start spinning and experimenting with yarn.

We will have materials available on-site, but participants are also welcome to bring their own materials!
