Participants will be introduced to the basics of soft circuitry, some basic electronics, Arduino software, programming, and reading a sensor. At the end of the day they will have a functioning interactive sensor, which they can sew onto a garment, bag or cushion cover.
Maximum number of participants is 15. Ages 15+ are welcome.
The anticipated participants include artists who are interested in DIY Maker activities and hardware ‘hacking’ for wearable electronic fashion, performers and choreographers, artists and the general public – all are invited to get involved.
NOTE: this is a beginner’s Lilypad / Arduino workshop – not for advanced users.
