This workshop is presented as part of the 'Making Patterns' exhibit showing at 117 Beekman Street.
Learn how to create generative clothing patterns with open source software! The instructors will provide a conceptual introduction to generative and parametric clothing design, as well as basic programming techniques. Students will use the Kinect with custom measuring software to quickly determine a person’s measurements, and export them to Processing, wherein they will “draft” clothing patterns using the included software, acquiring basic visual programming concepts along the way.
The workshop is based on Open Fit, a generative clothing workflow created by Lisa Kori Chung and Kyle McDonald. The workshop will be structured to accommodate all programming skill levels, and all levels of fashion or pattern making experience.
