Create Your Own Light-Up Softies! ages 9-14

Participants will create a softie of their own design in the style of the ugly dolls. They will have their choice of beads for eyes, and add LEDs to their vision.

This class will lead to others which include more sophisticated sewable electronics.

My son focused on the lessons he learned in the workshop for his Science Fair project. He made more sock dolls with electronics and posed the question 'Can a toy express love?' for his invention project. He designed some interesting interactions. He was very proud.

Note from Trish... me too...

Note: This class is at Resurrection Lutheran, 1900 E. Carson St. (at Cherry)

    Thank you, Trish, for providing an opportunity for the kids to take their creations to the next level. Rachel loves sewing, but we don't get to do enough of it.
