DEAF: Crafting the Future

Date: MAY 17-20
Location: Post, Rotterdam The Netherlands,

Mika has been to DEAF festival in Rotterdam, giving a workshop and participating in the panel discussion. The workshop theme was to combine two different “crafting” techniques, 3D printing and Textile techniques, to come up with new materials and techniques that can be incorporated with e-textile practices. We started out with the introduction to each techniques, basic 3D printing and basic textile technique (crochet, knitting and tatting), then the participants separated into groups to experiment how these two techniques can marge. The outcome is quite impressive and diverse. It ranges from self folding Origami to 3D segmented textiles to 3D printer (as robot) crochet performance.
