The Textile Makerspace (Pigott Hall, 260-238) provides an environment for exploring infrastructure (sewing machine, serger, vinyl/fabric cutter, 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!
The Textile Makerspace is co-directed by Nichole Nomura (PhD student in English) and Quinn Dombrowski (DLCL Academic Technology Specialist). Whenever the Makerspace is open, someone can help you assemble and cut out patterns and sew your own creations.
Textile Makerspace Winter Hours
The Textile Makerspace will be open Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays all quarter, from 12 - 1 PM. Come by whenever you have a chance!
Our theme for the quarter is New Year's Resolutions. Learn a new skill, mend something broken, or make something instead of buying it! We'll also have designs and ideas on hand for making your own Valentines with our Cricut paper / fabric cutter.
To stay up-to-date with dates and announcements, you can join the Textile Makerspace mailing list.
