As eTextile practitioners, we have all dreamt of what ideal connectors would look and behave like. There is a lot to still be explored, made and designed. Rachel and Lara will lead this workshop by introducing a few connector designs and concepts that participants can use and improve. As a group, we will discuss common connection problems, brainstorm and then prototype solutions. Multiple materials will be provided including rivets, safety pins, wire, conductive fabric, thread and other conductive findings.
Our process, progress, and design prototypes will be documented. If you have your own favorite connector solutions or materials that you would like to explore, we highly encourage you to bring them to share and develop!
