This summer, Netherlands based Knitwear Lab is offering a ‘crash course’ on industrial knitwear design. The 10-day program introduces you to the M1plus pattern software and teaches you how to work with the latest Stoll flatbed knitting machines. The curriculum caters especially to students and professionals who are interested in gaining extensive knowledge on designing, programming and manufacturing knitwear.
“Our practice-oriented approach allows you to develop your first knitted swatches. Special focus will be placed on (sustainable) fibres and yarns. Moreover, you’ll get familiar with Adobe for knitters and you’ll learn how to develop a Tech Pack in order to communicate in-depth with your programmer or designer,” Knitwear Lab explains.
“Knitwear Lab is the leading knowledge centre for industrial knitwear in the Netherlands. We run extensive research projects on the most innovative technical applications of knitwear for both the fashion and textile industry. We are located in Almere, in the proximity of Amsterdam. Here we have three Stoll flatbed knitting machines at our disposal, among which the 1 Stoll-Multi Gauge 7.2 ADF BW16. This technical ‘tour de force’ is capable of knitting the most innovative stitches and patterns,” the company says.
The Industrial Knitwear Course will take place during the last two weeks of August or the first two weeks of September. There are still a few spots available for both dates. The price will be €1200 (excluding VAT) for the entire course. For students we offer a discounted rate of € 950 (excluding VAT).
