BASIC TEXTILE COURSE

In a one-day basic training session, we impart the basics of textiles to you

1. FIBRES

1. FIBRES

Fibre knowledge: what there are, characteristics and use

  • Fibre types: Natural, man-made and synthetic fibres
  • Fabrication and characteristics
  • Developments

2. FIBRE PROCESSING

2. FIBRE PROCESSING

  • Spinning
  • Yarn fabrication
  • Developments

3. FABRIC FORMING

3. FABRIC FORMING

  • Weaving basic constructions, processing, selvedges, properties of flat-, jacquard-, pile woven fabrics
  • Knitting basic constructions, processing, properties of weft- and circular knittings
  • Nonwovens Felt processing, felt strengthening, finishing, end-use

4. FABRIC COLOURING

4. FABRIC COLOURING

  • Pre-treatment (before dying or printing)
  • Dying: Yarn and piece dying
  • Printing:
    Principle, Workflow preprint, printing techniques (roller~, screen~, transfer~, digital)
    Colour: theory, measuring, deviation
    Post-treatment (dyestuff fixation, washing)

5. FABRIC FINISHING

5. FABRIC FINISHING

  • Post-treatment / Finishing:
    Chemical and Mechanical finishing
  • Characteristics & fastnesses, product specification, ecology

Terms Basic Textile Course

The BASIC TEXTILE COURSE generally deals with all aspects of textile in a brief overview.

The course is given in 1 day part of about 5 hours.

The number of participants is between 1 and 10. Larger groups are possible, however, we advise not to make the group too big because experience shows that the course becomes less effective since not all questions can be addressed.

The course can be given in English, German or Dutch.

The participants get handouts of the course.

The course is usually given on location. On request, the course can be customized, tailored to the target audience or company.

Terms Advanced Textile Course

The ADVANCED TEXTILE COURSE deals in depth with all aspects of textile.

Among other things additional attention is paid to printing, conventional & digital, colour physics, fastnesses, fault sources and the environment.

The course consists of 2 main parts and is, depending on the desired depth, given in 3-5 modules of about 5 hours each.

The number of participants is between 1 and 10. Larger groups are possible, however, we advise not to make the group too big because experience shows that the course becomes less effective since not all questions can be addressed.

The course can be given in English, German or Dutch.

The participants get handouts of the course.
