Learn the basics of soft circuitry in this 2.5 hour workshop. Students will be given project-based instruction on basic circuitry and will construct soft circuits using conductive thread and fabric. Instructor Grace Kim will share basic sewing and physical computing knowledge and tips for repurposing everyday sewing implements for use in wearable technology projects. Students will walk away with a custom LED wristband.
- No prior experience with electronics or sewing required (knowing how to thread a needle and knot thread is a plus!).
What to Bring:
- Materials included.
