These are the material samples of a metal wire company based in Switzerland. They can color these wires following the Pantone color scheme, so the sky is the limit … . Get in contact with me if you want to know more. I want to use the blue metal wire for my next project, following the theme of the glacier, like the weaving The Glacier.
Material: copper 0,071mm, cu/ag20 0,063mm
Last week I received my order of paper yarn. It is beautiful! I ordered unbleached and white yarn in different qualities. I am so happy about the quality of the very thin yarn, it was a problem for me to locate a supplier for this kind.
Material: paper yarn, 0,34mm, 0,6mm, 0,2mm, 0,94mm
Having absorbed the workshop of spinning and the spirit of Lexi Boeger, I was motivated to get going on my own spinningwheel. It just arrived from germany. It is very old, but still can do! With the aim to produce yarn, that can conduct electricity, and to work with the esthetics of the existing conductive yarn on the market I set ahead. Here you can see the first handspun conductive yarn, well, it is certainly decorative and to beautiful to be woven into something – so I ll keep them around in my studio just as they are and I am quite sure they will find the way in one of my projects.
Material: thin metal wire, grey norwegian wool, mohair, found fishing material
February 24 – 26th 2010 / Electronics with the Arduino
In this workshop run by Scott Fitzgerald (NY) at Atelier Nord, Oslo, I learned about how to translate information from the physical world into digital information with the arduino.
March 15 – 18th 2010 / Wearable Sound Experiments
I was attending a workshop in Wearable Sound Experiments at Atelier Nord, Oslo run by Hannah Perner-Wilson and Miko Satomi. The workshop introduces basic soft electronics techniques for constructing fabric sensors and wearable circuits.
May 8th – 9th 2010, Lillehammer, Spinnvilt Location
The textile artist Lexi Boeger/ Placerville, California, USA will give a spinning workshop that introduces techniques to create your own new and original styles. Pluckyfluff´s creations of garn, her experimental approach in material and size, is motivating me to learn how to produce my own garn for my work.
