Do This Spring Break That Will Make You an Expert in eTextiles #WearableWednesday #wearabletech #tech #art

eTextile Break in New York

For years a group of eTextile lovers has been meeting in the French countryside for some quality research time. This eTextile Summer Camp is almost always sold out because the same people have continued to meet each year. However, this year there is exciting news as a spin-off event has started in the Catskill mountains of New York. ETextile Spring Break has a call for intermediate and expert electronic craft practitioners according to their site:

This inaugural Spring Break will take place from April 1-8, 2018 at the Wassaic Project in the picturesque hamlet of Wassaic, New York. We are looking for 20-25 makers, designers, engineers, and artists who work in the field of eTextiles, wicked fabrics, and electronic craft to participate. Selected participants will pay a fee of $350 to cover lodging, workspace, materials, food, and drink for the week. Travel to and from the Wassaic Project must be covered by participants and is easily accessible by Metro-North railway.

So, if any of you are unsure of what the new year brings, but are excited by conductive materials and the chance to collaborate in a relaxed atmosphere, you should definitely submit an application. You have until Dec. 6th, so don’t over-think it!
