Textile Technology Center offers summer class, July 27

Interested in learning more about textiles? Consider a summer class at the Textile Technology Center, a full-scale “mini-mill,” located in Belmont, NC (approximately 10 minutes from the Charlotte Airport on the Gaston College Campus).

A textile product development facility where seminar attendees can learn about textile processing and observe fiber being processed through yarn, fabric and performance testing, the Textiles 101 class was developed for industry professionals (sales, marketing, purchasing, manufacturing, IT), architects and interior designers, apparel and fashion merchandising personnel, as well as for educational enrichment (college students, teachers and staff development). Classes are routinely scheduled with open enrollment, but the Center will also conduct classes specifically for a client or business upon request.

Seminars are four hours in length and are comprised of a combination of classroom instruction, lab exercises and a tour of the facility to see the products in process. Topics include fiber analysis, yarn spinning, weaving, knitting and non-woven fundamentals; fabric types and constructions; dyeing, finishing and printing; fabric testing, analysis and quality control; textile trends, and product development.

The next class is set for July 27 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and the seminar fee is $95.00 per person. To enroll, phone (704) 825-3737 ext. 254 or email Anderson.john@gaston.edu.
