The goal of this project is to improve Wikidata's coverage of textile arts - sewing, weaving, knitting, lacemaking, needlework, and other related crafts. Our scope will include textile processes, the artisans who practice those processes, and the materials they produce.

Distinct itemsEdit

Following the standard established by WikiProject Visual arts and other projects, we should maintain distinct items for:

  1. textile arts or crafts processes and techniques
  2. types of materials or objects produced using those processes
  3. the related profession or occupation for people who practice those processes

Inter-relationships:


Instances and subclassesEdit

In general, textile arts concepts (crafts and materials) should be <subclass of> "textile", "textile art", "textile process", or "textile tool", etc., or, more often, one of their subclasses.

  • Exception: Types of textile fiber (wool (Q42329), silk (Q37681)) should always be <instance of> Q3071311; this is a metaclass and has instances that are classes. (Many of these are already modeled.)

Individual textile items (like Appliqué inv. 2757 (Q26756759), a piece of bobbin lace in a museum collection), should be <instance of> the relevant subclass of "textile art".

Professions and occupations should be <instance of> occupation (Q12737077) and can also be a <subclass> of a broader occupation.

PropertiesEdit

Main propertiesEdit

Other propertiesEdit

  • uses (P2283): item or concept used by the subject or in the operation (see also instrument [P1303] and armament [P520])
  • used by (P1535): item or concept that makes use of the subject (use sub-properties when appropriate)
  • use (P366): main use of the subject (includes current and former usage)

Inter-relationsEdit

Here are four different types of concepts we are working with and properties for their inter-relations. Please feel free to modify or comment on the talk page.

Inter-relations
Item Art / craft / method Product / material Tool Occupation
Art / craft / method

an activity (e.g. quilting (Q1920065))

subclass of (P279) product or material produced (P1056) (e.g. quilt (Q1064538))

uses (P2283) (e. g. cloth (Q5849500))

uses (P2283) (e.g. sewing needle (Q142690)) practiced by (P3095) (e.g. quilt maker (Q30341438))
Product / material

the result of the activity (e.g. quilt (Q1064538))

fabrication method (P2079)(e.g. quilting (Q1920065)) material used (P186) (e. g. cloth (Q5849500))

subclass of (P279) (e.g. textile artwork (Q22075301))

Tool

the instrument used to produce the product or material (e.g. sewing needle (Q142690))

use (P366) (e.g. quilting (Q1920065)) subclass of (P279) (e.g. Q56145959) used by (P1535) (e.g. quilt maker (Q30341438))
Occupation

the actor, who produces the product (e.g. quilt maker (Q30341438)

field of this occupation (P425)(e.g. quilting (Q1920065)) uses (P2283) (e. g. cloth (Q5849500))

product or material produced (P1056) (e.g. quilt (Q1064538))

uses (P2283) (e.g. sewing needle (Q142690)) subclass of (P279) (e.g. textile worker (Q66035178))

QueriesEdit

Find orphan items. If an item is not found in any of the listings, it is not categorised under any of the top classes.

Fix item classes. Pay attention to the type of class Art / craft / method <> Product / material <> Tool <> Occupation. If the item's categorisation is false, the different review methods will reveal that and allow fixing it. More classes can be added to the table, also subclasses of existing ones.
