The Electromagnetic Field Sensing workshop took place on April 2015 in the Bauhaus University in Weimar, Germany during the Future Vintage: The Textile Resistance program. The workshop encompasses the idea of intersecting science and art through e-textiles and wearables, by creating handmade technological artifacts that can sense electromagnetic fields. Throughout the duration of the workshop the participants engaged on prototyping hand-crafted coils and designing their own interactive textiles by using embedded microcontrollers and actuators.

The aim of the workshop was to create a - light and sound - enhanced textile/wearable, that would provide sensory information on the invisible electromagnetic fields that surround us. The creation of these unique artifacts was intended to permit the participants to immerse their bodies to their surroundings through a playful exploration of art, tradition and technology, and to provide a fertile field of experimentation towards future mythologies/methodologies of traditional handicrafts.
