Hirikikas - Power textil - Elisabeth Lorenzi | Tabakalera - Donostia / San Sebastián

Power textil

power textil, weaving and electronics

This workshop aims to explore all of the stages involved in the traditional techniques of working with wool: carding, spinning, felting, weaving, etc., in order to incorporate electronics and create textile electronic accessories (wearables) in a handcrafted way.

During the workshop we will mix textile and conductive materials, we will produce yarns and components, generate energy ... and build electronic/textile circuits in a simple way using the techniques of spinning, weaving and felting.

 

E-TEXTILES, GENDER AND ADAPTED TECHNOLOGY
 

Our work is based on technological mediation in the emerging field of textile electronics, understanding this as an opportunity for contact between a traditionally feminine technology such as working with wool with a male-dominated technology such as electronics. We also position ourselves in the area of technological innovation by adopting an adapted technologies perspective – that is to say, a technology that is sustainable and does not create dependence – promoting new opportunities based on the use of virgin and/or recycled wool.

Power Textile is an initiative within the framework of Open Textiles, a project that promotes experimentation and collaborative and open work in textile design and production.
