Future Master Craftsmanship: Where We Want Electronic Textile Crafts to Go

Mika Satomi
Hannah Perner-Wilson

Craft, both as process and resulting artifact, implies notions of care, foresight, human skill and investment. In this paper we examine the practice of creating E-Textiles as a contemporary craft, and we ask ourselves what will become of this craft when the first fully automated machine for E-Textiles production hits the market. Will the craft in E-Textiles survive, and why do we care that it does?
