Ellentriek goes Knitting
May 18th
10h00 to 18h00

with knitic.com & Claire Williams

Do you as a die-hard knitter want to see how an old knitting machine gets a new brain?

In the eighties and nineties electronic knitting machines were readily available. But it was never a simple task to knit an image, a drawing, photograph, text you designed yourself . This is all about to change! With Knitic you can connect your computer directly to the knitting machine.

10:00
Do the knitting machine brain surgery with Knitic.
All is open hardware and free software.
Open for absolute beginners.

14:00 Come and knit digital photographs, texts, drawings with the refurbished knitting machine!

Please contact us if you want to modify your machine of the type Brother KH 930 or KH 940, no previous electronic knowledge needed: wendy@constantvzw.org

in collaboration with De Pianofabriek kunstenwerkplaats & Constant vzw.

After the workshop, Claire will experiment further with her digital knitting machine. Just drop by!Venez associer tricot et photographie – nous nous attaquerons au cerveau d’une machine a tricoter

    Hello, I am a female art student from London, currently studying at the University of the applied arts Vienna. I am beginning to work with arduino and want to make interactive art in the future, so this sounds perfect for me! I want to go to this workshop:

    where is it? is it in English? where do I apply? and how much does it cost? also is there anything going on in Vienna at the moment because I know you are based here?

    It’s such a fantastic organisation and I would love to get involved,

    Many thanks,

    Hazel
