eTextile Spring Break is a weeklong gathering of eTextile and electronic craft practitioners in upstate New York.
The idea for this camp emerged out of conversations the organizers had as participants at eTextile Summer Camp in France. Seeking to nurture our own eTextiles community on the other side of the Atlantic, we decided to begin our own camp. Two years later, we are getting ready to announce the second eTextile Spring Break. We are a bunch of fiber nerds, wool punks, and DIY electronics enthusiasts fascinated by the combination of technology and craft, whether material, social, cultural, technological, poetic, or aesthetic.
Spring Break is hosted at the Wassaic Project, a residency and exhibition space in Wassaic, NY. Their commitment to local community development through the arts and creating spaces for emerging artists inspires us. We are excited to collaborate with them on this event.
The call for applications is currently closed. To receive updates and news on future eTextile Spring Break events, please sign up for our mailing list here.
