Crafting Textiles in the Digital Age is a timely debate on the concept and role of craft in textile creation and digital technology. The book's contributors address various issues, reflecting on aesthetic, social, economic, and environmental point of views, making it a valuable think tank for researchers, practitioners, and makers within textiles. * Hitoshi Ujiie, Director of the Center for Excellence in Surface Imaging, Philadelphia University, USA *
This book offers an overview of the current context and approach being taken to the making and crafting of contemporary digital textiles. It clearly defines the field of digital craft and outlines many key practitioners involved in pushing the boundaries of process, method, and materials. The book clearly demonstrates new and innovative thinking as well as the new visual language which emerges from crafting textiles through digital methods. * Amanda Briggs-Goode, Nottingham Trent University, UK *
