Fabric & Electronics

Liza Stark was kind enough to host DT (MFA Design & Technology) alumni & graduates to her home for a collaborative making session. I was surrounded by a comfortable circle of friends who, were all passionate about experimenting with different materials with a can-do-it-so-let's-make-it attitude. We gave each other encouragement to craft and experiment with fabrics and electronics.

Earlier that morning, I picked up fabrics from MOOD Fabrics up on 37th street:  2 yards of white lining in a fish-net weave, 1.5 yards of Anna Sui synthetic black polyester, and one yard of plastic -polyester blend in a pebble silver-white color.
