2-day workshop at Kunsthochschule Weissensee’s E-Lab in Berlin, Germany. This 2-day introductory workshop introduces textile students to the materials, tools and techniques used animate electronic textiles using electromagnetism. The goal of this workshop if for each student to compile their own swatchbook that will contain samples of various techniques, as well as to compile one complete swatchbook of all examples that will stay with the university. An introductory exercise to familiarize oneself with the materials, techniques and electromagnetism, each student will copy a set of three examples. Then each student will proceed to design their own swatch and make copies…

Held as part of the Interaction Design Masters at ECAL in Lausanne, Switzerland. From Swatches to Pockets is an introductory electronic textile workshop that draws upon the E-Textile Swatch Exchange as a means of acquiring knowledge and skill, as well as a source of inspiration for imagining pocket technology of the future. >> http://www.kobakant.at/DIY/?p=5812

We have a new dedicated Swatch Exchange website. The design is still under construction, and open to contribution from anybody who wants to help. All data from the old sites has been transferred to this new site! The old Swatch Exchange categories on the summercamp websites still exist, and here are the links:

This post is a platform for us to collect ideas and discuss whether we want to produce extra copies of the Swatchbook and what we could do with them. Everyone is welcome to edit this post and add/organize things to further the discussion!
