Come and work in the TextielLab

The TextielLab is opening its doors to talented final-year students who are interested in spending a unique period working in our inspiring lab. For a reduced fee, we are offering you the chance to develop and realise your project in our state-of-the-art facilities.

We are looking for ambitious students with innovative ideas and a passion for textiles. During your time in the TextielLab, you will have the opportunity to work with our experienced team of experts and product developers, use the machines and access our other resources such as lectures, workshops, extensive library and more!

How to apply

Submit a project proposal that describes your concept, objectives and intended results. Make sure that your proposal is clear and convincing and indicates how the project will utilise the TextielLab’s resources and expertise. Keep in mind that any preparatory work must be completed before you come to the lab, so that you can get started on the project straight away.


If you graduate in the summer, you can register for the work period April-May-June. The deadline to register for this is March 1st, 2024. The results will be announced no later than March 19 and the selected students will have the opportunity to work for 3 days (for the weaving technique) or 5 days (for the knitting technique) in the period April-May-June 2024.
