Bart Hess invites a selected group of creative minds to join him for his summer school 2017 Winter edition 'Future Textiles'. Over the span of one week Bart will give you an insight into his creative process, from concept to finish, teaching the participants about material development, narrative, photography, sound and video-editing.

 

The course will concentrate on exploring different types of Future Textiles. During the week you will manipulate the characters of textile by experimenting with a variety of material and techniques.  A playful approach to material is at heart of this process, working towards an innovative visual for your own portfolio.

 

Dates: 11 – 15 December

Dates: 18 – 22 December

Bart Hess explores several fields combining material studies animation and photography in a surrealist manner. With his fascination for the human body and the manipulation of it, Hess pushes the boundaries of the textile design profession: his futuristic materials and textures blur the boundary between textile and skin, human and new species. With his work Hess has obtained an independent position in the world of fashion, design and art. his list of international collaborations and clients include prestigious names such as Lady Gaga, Lucy McRae, Palais de Tokyo and Nick Knight.

 

 

Located in the city center of Eindhoven, Design capital of The Netherlands. The studio of Bart Hess will be transformed to an avant-garde classroom for designers. Where each participant will get his own workstation.
