This workshop is an introduction to e-textiles and focuses on integrating ordinary electronics into fabric. We will modify electronic components and sew them together using conductive thread. You will take home a plush firefly that lights up in the dark.

No prior experience of electronics or sewing required. All materials are included. Class size is limited to 10 students. To reserve your spot call or visit FabLab Tacoma or click here to sign up online.

Fay Shaw, the class instructor, is an engineer and crafter and owner of bitwise E-textiles, specializing in designing e-textile kits. She has found e-textiles to be the perfect intersection of her interests and an engaging way to teach electronics. On the engineering side, Fay is the CTO of Play Works Studio, a company dedicated to creating robot toys and games for education. On the crafting side, Fay likes to knit, spin, and sew.
