Making is traditionally something we connect to arts & crafts. Maker culture has redefined the words make and making to include the conscious introduction of (digital) technology to arts & crafts. The combination of technology, art, and education has been the entry point for Vague Research Studios to journey into the area of making. We are textile material technology specialists, artists, designers, art and technology educators, and researchers, and our interest lies in how technology enters education of art, craft and design.
