Crafting Frequencies

A series of workshops designed to explore electromagnetic fields (EMFs)s through embroidery and craft techniques.

In the sessions participants are invited to hand craft coils with copper tape or thread. EMFs can be used as transmitters or receivers of information (such as speakers or antennas), and the samplers participants made function technically as speakers as well as being beautifully crafted pieces. I also designed a worksheet for kids to get started called “A4 Audio” (download a PDF here). The workshops were part of the Rooms festival in 2015, and the Craft Council’s Make_Shift_Do in 2016.
