E - Textiles 101
This 2 day workshop will teach you everything you need to know to make your own wearable electronics (Just in time for the holidays)!
- Day One, 12/10, 1:00PM - 5:00PM: We will learn about e-textiles materials and methods including: soft circuits, power, voltage, resistance, hand-sewing vs. machine sewing, conductive fabric, conductive thread, sewing LEDs, switches, sensors, plus examples of what you can do with these tools!
- Day Two, 12/11, 1:00PM - 5:00PM: We will start with an intro to programming with Lilypad Arduino, and then we will work on individual projects.
Participants will create their own e-textile project using the Lilypad, LEDs, and soft switches, and take away their own e-textiles resource guide.
Bring your own article of clothing or other soft item (blanket, potholder, bag) that you would like to use for your project on Day Two. Also, please bring a laptop (Mac or PC) to run Arduino on.
Cost: $160 for the workshop and your own Lilypad Arduino kit!
If you have an Arduino Lilypad, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hurry! This workshop is limited to 8 people.
