E-textiles and having electronics in your clothes might sound like science-fiction but are actually a fun and easy way to learn all about electricity and building sensors. E-textiles combine learning craft techniques (such as sewing, weaving, knitting and crocheting) with the added excitement of making a circuit work.
In this introductory workshop individuals will learn all about soft circuits and get the chance to make their own light up bookmark using an e-textile stitch sampler . This workshop will cover the basics of sewing with conductive thread, how to build your circuit, and sewing tools and techniques you can use to put everything together. No prior knowledge of electronics or sewing is required for this workshop. Beginners welcome!
