The week-long Summer Camp will be held for the second year in a row at the beautiful Paillard Contemporary Arts Center in the small village of Poncé-sur-le-Loir, about 200km south-west of Paris, France. The first Summer Camp took place in 2011 in Sweden.
Designed to bring experts in the field of eTextiles together to share their skills, the event focuses on collaboration, community and craft. As in previous years, most participants will have the opportunity to contribute by designing and running a workshop based on their area of expertise. You can also expect group projects, discussion sessions, swatch books and shared meals. Participants not only get to demonstrate their eTextile abilities, but their culinary skills as well!
Applications can be made via etextile-summercamp.org until April 27, 2014.
