The Textile Makerspace is Now Open!

The DLCL Digital Humanities Lab (260-238) is now open as a textile makerspace at least once a week! This makerspace provides an environment for exploring infrastructure (sewing machine, serger, cutting implements), reusability and adaptation (patterns), development (making things), and failure (seam ripping) in a materially-centered way. Chatting about digital humanities is optional, but not required!

DLCL Academic Technology Specialist Quinn Dombrowski will be available to help makers assemble and cut out patterns and sew their own creations. Basic supplies and fabric scraps for practice will be available, but makers should bring their own fabric. Quinn can assist with picking out materials.

The makerspace is open from 12-1:30 on the dates below. Makers are welcome to bring their own lunch.
