EL wire is simple in concept, but to master it requires a fine level of finesse. Following a brief talk on how Electroluminescent Wire actually works, attendees will get hands-on experience to learn tips, tricks, and techniques to ensure a durable and safe result for clothing and other projects and walk away with something fun to wear!

Arduinos can control LEDs, sights, sounds, and movement - all in a portable form factor. The hardware and software are easy enough for a novice to pick up quickly. Join us for an afternoon and come away with a strand of battery powered LEDs programmed, by you, to your desired colors and patterns for use on your body, bike, and latest art installation.
