Wearable Electronics: Wear your Light Heart on Your Sleeve

Learn to sew electronics. Wearable electronics can be used to illuminate, sense, and even communicate over wireless, all without a lick of solder.

In this beginner-oriented workshop, artist and electronics teacher Tenaya Hurst will show you how to sew lights into your clothing, using parts that can even be washed (provided you take the battery out).

Some hand-sewing practice can be helpful, but not necessary.

Workshop parts cost: $25.

    Look forward to seeing you all tomorrow! I'll give everyone an intro in the beginning, and then we'll just work! Bring something to add LEDs to, or we will have fabric to wear your light heart on your sleeve ;-) Can't wait to meet all of you and get our sewing circle going!

    Hi there Makers! Please check out this workshop, it is so much fun to SEW with conductive thread and add lights to your fashion statement! What we'll be working with on 2/11, you can keep as a "patch" to add to something you own, or take it all apart to sew into a new garment later! (or bring your garment to the workshop!) Sewing circle / sewing circuits!!!
