Workshop reflections and photos

The e-embroidery workshop organized on 17.-18.3.2012 in Helsinki at the Cable Factory turned out to be lots of fun! Nearly 20 people participated in the workshop, enthusiastically stitching yarns and experimenting with LEDs. We, the organizers, were impressed by the level of dedication and skill of the participants. The atmosphere and the outcomes of the event were just great! Many participants brought their own materials to the workshop and experimented with new ideas, such as 3D embroidery, audio and even an earth battery.

We dearly thank all the participants for making the workshop a success. Special thanks to Andrew Gryf Paterson and Pixelversity, as well as to Kässämartat for providing their stitching expertise, and TAUKO clothing designers for providing the recycled fabrics.

We also welcome everyone to see the wonderful outcomes of the workshop in May in Helsinki. The creative works will be exhibited at the Open Design, Crafts & Manufacturing demo-stalls at Arbis adult education centre during Camp Pixelache on 12.5.2012.

Below are couple photos from the workshop – more can be found on our Flickr pages. See also documentation by Till Bovermann.
