Event description

Description

E-textiles and having electronics in your clothes might sound like science-fiction but are actually a fun and easy way to learn all about electricity and building sensors. E-textiles combine learning craft techniques (such as sewing, weaving, knitting and crocheting) with the added excitement of making a circuit work. In this introductory workshop individuals will learn all about soft circuits and get the chance to make their own. This workshop will cover the basics of sewing with conductive thread, how to build your circuit, and sewing tools and techniques you can use to put everything together.


About Lee:

Im a PhD student at Carleton University in Ottawa researching ambient wearables at the Creative Interactions Lab. I also teach the Bodycentric Technologies class at OCAD University in Toronto, where Ive been able to teach students all about e-textiles and soft circuits. I fell in love with e-textiles while doing research on wearables, and really enjoy how they allow individuals to combine craft techniques and electronics.
