In this workshop Mitch will give you an overview of the world of electronic wearables and soft electronics, and introduce you to basic concepts in electronics, programming and sewing that allow them to make an electronic softie. You will build a small electronic softie project: a rainbow flower that you can take away at the end of the day. In the process, you will learn about the Arduino open‐source electronics platform, fabric and stitch electronic circuits, including conductive thread and how to control basic electronic components like a colourful LED.
PLEASE NOTE YOU WILL NEED A LAPTOP FOR THIS WORKSHOP.
