From Space Suits to High Fashion: A Hands-on Introduction to e-Textiles

e-textiles-wearables

The emerging field of e-textiles is exciting, fun, beautiful and overflowing with opportunities for innovation. We will sew LEDS into fabric and build simple circuits sewing with conductive thread. Participants will learn basic circuit design, explore the aesthetics of circuits and be introduced to the possibilities of embedding computational and electronic elements into wearables, architecture and home furnishings.
