As part of the research for my diploma thesis, entitled “Future Fibre Crafts”, I organized a workshop named KnitLab. The workshop was about the question: „Could you knit with light?” It was about the combination of traditional crafts and innovative light emitting or conductive material. With this research I wanted to find out how people use innovative materials, like electroluminescent wire or conductive yarn. Secondly, I wanted see the results of their self-initiated experimentations.
