Training School 2 – Textile Technology

We are happy to announce our second SOFTWEAR Training School at the University of Borås, Sweden!

The training school will be open to both, participants of SOFTWEAR project as well as all interested students and researchers.

Join us to learn about soft wearables and the relationship between technology progress in smart materials, science and textile/fashion design. Focus will be on the major textile processes; weaving, knitting, dying, coating and assembling. One day will be devoted to industrial aspects with a visit to the company Albany in Halmstad.
