17oct5:30 pm8:00 pmRENEWAL WORKSHOP TALK FROM LINEAR TO CIRCULAR: WHAT IT MEANS CIRCULAR APPAREL BUSINESS? *FREE

Event Details

Please join the Renewal Workshop at the Portland Apparel Lab for a very important talk and break out session on the circular economy.

Space limited to 50, register here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/renewal-workshop-talk-from-linear-to-circular-what-it-means-tickets-50380101239

Any kind of goal requires movement from A to B. And if it is a worthy goal that movement is difficult. Think of a race or a desire to learn a new skill or craft. There are hours and hours of learning and growing, of commitment and sacrifice that go into achieving that goal.

Our goal at The Renewal Workshop to transform our economy from linear to circular is no different. In fact, we have a goal that not only includes ourselves but the entire apparel industry – a $5 trillion global industry That’s what you call a BIG goal.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A CIRCULAR APPAREL BUSINESS?

Before we could even begin to wrap our brains around such a gargantuan goal, we first had to define what we mean when we say that The Renewal Workshop is a circular business. In the most general terms, being circular describes operating in a way in which the outputs of any process can be made to be used again as the inputs in the same system; every element is kept in the circle as much as possible. This differs from being linear where inputs are gathered, utilized and combined, and then discarded as outputs. We see plenty of circular systems in nature, like the water and nutrient cycle, but so many human systems are linear, following the pattern of make, use, dispose.

Katazome is a centuries-old Japanese dyeing technique in which artists create a resist paste from a rice flour mixture and apply it to cloth using elaborately hand-carved stencils. Wherever the paste is applied, it resists the dye, creating a pattern. In this two-day intensive workshop, students will learn the basics of Katazome, including the preparation of the resist paste, the creation of personalized stencils, the application of the paste onto silk and cotton fabric, and the dyeing of the fabric in a natural indigo vat. Students will leave with large-scale, patterned/dyed yardage.

24oct6:30 pm8:00 pmAnnica Cuppetilli Lecture *Free

Event Details

Annica Cuppetelli is a fiber/installation artist and fashion designer based in Detroit, MI. Drawing on her past experience in the fashion world, her practice lies on the intersection of fashion, design and art. Her process uses techniques and materials borrowed from garment making and fashion design and applies them to create forms that evoke garments, but exist as sculptures and spaces. Rather than simply wrap, transform, or conceal, she attempts to question fashion in order to reveal its complicated relationship with the female body and identity.

Annica is a recipient of the Daimler Financial Emerging Artist Award, the Searchlight Emerging Artist Award and was a nominee for the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Grant. She also collaborates with Cristobal Mendoza as Cuppetelli and Mendoza, focusing on the creation of site-specific, multimedia installations that address issues of space, interaction and materiality. Their work has been exhibited in the Denver Art Museum, Telfair Museums (Savannah, GA), the Biennial of Video and Media Arts (Chile, 2012) and festivals such as Nemo 2013 (France) Scopitone 2012 (France), ISEA 2012, FILE 2011 (Brazil), FAD 2011 (Brazil), video_dumbo 2013 (NYC, USA) among others. They were selected as Kresge Visual Arts Fellows in 2015. Cuppetelli obtained her MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art (Fiber, 2008) and her BFA from the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, MI.

Event Details

The Sustainable Fashion Forum is hosting a panel discussion centered around ethical design and the use of sustainable textiles.

It’s estimated that we consume 80 billion pieces of clothing per year. Consequently, millions of tons of textiles are discarded each year, placing an increased pressure on the Earth’s decreasing natural resources. As we look for ways to balance our love of fashion with conscious consumption it’s important that we are aware of the materials used in our clothing and soft goods.

Join us for an interactive discussion as we discuss the challenges and goals of sustainable textiles in the fashion industry and explore ways members of our community are minimizing their impact on the environment through waste reduction, new techniques, technologies, and trends.

27oct12:00 pm5:00 pmThread and Yarn Construction with a Turkish Spindle

Event Details

The basis for most textiles is the yarn or thread with which they are made. It’s possible to build all kinds of qualities into these threads so they’ll behave in desired ways in finished fabrics. A Turkish spindle is a wonderful and ancient tool that can be used in a variety of ways to create these different threads. Best of all, the process of spinning with a Turkish spindle fits perfectly into our modern world. You can grab idle moments you didn’t know you had (sitting in a car or bus or train or standing on line or watching TV…) and create beautiful threads and yarns just by carrying a small Turkish spindle and some fluff on the go. Taking advantage of these idle moments can in fact produce miles and miles of gorgeous yarns in a fairly short period of time.

This class provides an overview of lots of possibilities for using Turkish spindles. Nothing is lovelier than watching beautifully patterned layers of spun strands pile up on your spindle and watching them reveal themselves again in reverse order as you use your yarn. Learn to wind gorgeous cops (yarn balls) onto your spindle, to ply from your cops, and to use them for easy skein winding. Plying in beads, silk flowers and sequins will be demonstrated as will ply on the fly (chain plying as you spin your singles) which will give you a plied ball of yarn directly from fluff, in one process! Support spindling with your Turkish spindle as well as spinning energized singles (and their uses for creating bias in fabric), will also be discussed as will thoughts on combining colors and fibers and a basic wash process to set the twist. There will be lots of Turkish spindle spun skeins made from numerous fiber mixes to examine. Special emphasis will be placed on ergonemetric hand positions to provide hours of comfort and safety and to help you spin beautifully consistent singles. In addition there will be a discussion of stained glass inspired spinning and knitting, to fill your work with luminous color and shimmer! There will be time for individual attention, wherever in the process you may need it.

Taught by knitting instructor and Author Ilisha Helfman.

Students will receive: A variety of small samples of different fibers to try plus a 1-page handout.

Price: $68
