Circular Knitic Workshop in Madrid

Thanks to Fred for sending in information on this very cool machine! Check out more info on the workshop here.

The Circular Knitic is an incredible new digital fabrication tool: it’s an open source knitting machine created by artists Varvara Guljajeva and Mar Canet.

As an open source tool, it has been designed in the Reprap movement Philosophy: that means that all materials to build it are standard (Nema Motors) or/and open source (Arduino Uno) or/and can be 3D printed or Laser cutted. All the files are available in the Github of the artists. And all is proposed as a kit to build. These really elegant and functional tools are the now essential tool of any experimentation place as fablabs, labs, Makespace, Hackerspaces, innovation labs, and contribute to extend the fascinating field of creation that is Textile.

Varvara and Mar proposes workshops to build their fantastic machine. The first one was in Wemake in Italy and the next one is in Madrid in Ultra-lab. It will take place the 28 and 29th of April. Participants can attend as a group to build their own Circular Knitic or can participate to contribute to the construction of one of them and will be able to use the machine in Ultra-lab space anytime they wish.

The workshop is ideal to have the opportunity to add the Circular Knitic to the range of the typical tools that you must find in a lab to create and experiment. So if you are in Spain or want to come, don’t hesitate 🙂
