We live in a world where you can order groceries to your doorstep, know what your friend in Taiwan is up to… and wear your electronics!
Want to learn about the world of e-textiles and start your own high-tech wardrobe?
Inspired by Leah Buechley
, inventor of the Lilypad Arduino
and director of MIT’s High-Low Tech
research group, we are hosting a 2-day workshop that will teach you everything you need to know in order to make your own wearable electronics!
- 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.
