Block 3: E-textile Energy Harvesting

by Maurin Donneaud and Beam Pourquoi faire simple quand on peut faire compliqué ! Through this workshop we will experiment three possibilities for harvesting energy with textile materials. We will explore textiles that generate electricity with piezoelectric, thermoelectric and triboelectric … Continue reading

Block 2: Bio textiles


As electronics find their way into textiles, living organisms do so as well. Biotechnology in textiles and the application of living organisms in finishing and processing is a rising field of interest. Bacterial Cellulose (BC), as an example, receives attention due to … Continue reading

Block 2: Sensing EMFs through textiles

Given by Afroditi Psarra and Martin De Bie. This workshop encompasses the idea of intersecting science and art through e-textiles and wearables, by creating handmade technological artefacts that can sense electromagnetic fields.
