E-Textile Workspace

The E-Textile Workspace aims to offer an informal setting for both critical discussion around&about wearables, and for hands-on work on individual projects. It aims to open a space where practice is intertwined with knowledge sharing, feedback exchange among the invited participants – members of the wearable community in The Netherlands – and with critical reflection on the state-of-the-art in wearable technology. This page displays a collection of all the documented material that was generated during the various sessions.
