One of the most interesting moments for fashion students is the residency at Lottozero, in Prato, in the heart of one of the most important textile districts in Europe.
Lottozero is both a research center for textile design, art and culture, and a laboratory for textile production, experimentation and research: an ideal combination for giving those attending the course a highly educational experience from the both theoretical and practical points of view.
During the residency period, the students worked on the production of non-woven fabrics, making felt and experimenting with needle-punching on fabrics and garments that they themselves had brought from home, in an upcycling logic.
A specific work session was dedicated to natural dyeing made with food waste.
Students experiment with screen printing with stencils, starting from drawings they have previously made.
Together with the teacher Cristina Mariani, the students explored the principles of orthogonal weaving, from a theoretical and practical point of view, working on 8-heddle looms.
