    DEAF: Crafting the Future Workshop

    Date: MAY 17-18
    Location: Post, Rotterdam The Netherlands,
    The workshop is a part of DEAF festival

    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!

    here are some pictures from the outcome:

    Self folding Origami structure using interfacing textiles and thin layer of 3D print.


    3D segmented textiles used as scarf.


    needle felting the flexible 3D print to connect them together. The felt consists conductive wool, so it also conducts electricity.


    Hairy 3D print. It includes real human hair too.
    Two of these were printed at the same time and some part of the hair was connecting the two objects.


    And this is the second version of the “Hairy print”


    You can also print it only with the head. It is like soft serve ice creams. The picture is Ricardo making a big cone shaped shoulder ornament.


    I have tried this ice cream technique with origami balloon made out of water soluble textile (it is usually used for making lace with embroidery). after covering the whole balloon with 3D print material, I dropped it into water and you get the hollow 3D ball.


    One group tried to crochet and embed the yarn while the 3D printer is printing. This made a nice knitting circle with robot performance, even though it was not their first intension. The picture is not the result of the performance, but it shows the idea.

    The “3D printer guys” at this workshop comes from Ultimaker community. It is an open source 3D printer, and it prints darn good!

    And here is a wonderful video from DEAF team!
