Pile weave darning


Pile weaved “darning” an impossible textile inspired by Sasha’s rya knotting workshop. I was using this technique to make a “shake” sensor.

Process: I strengthened worn space or hole with Bemis -I made an artificial hole for the experiment. (see Rachel’s swatch for example of Bemis witch conductive fabric). I then built the warp with non-conductive thread, and darned the hole using long pile weave of conductive and non-conductive yarns. The balls weighed the conductive fabric down for the “shake sensor”.
