I’m running a wearable technology workshop this weekend at Frayedwire, which will introduce people to soft-circuits and how to work with conductive threads. Here's the workshop:
Making Electronic Fabrics: Integrating Conductive Thread, LEDs, and Soft Switches into fabrics
This workshop will be a hands-on session focused on integrating electronics into fabrics and making soft switches out of snaps, hooks, zippers and other fashion-hardware. We will be making fashion accessory Palz, soft plush robots that light up when they hold hands. Turn a snap into a switch that turns an LED on and off. All of the circuitry will be sewn directly into the fabric. I'll also be talking a little about the Lilypad (Arduino for wearable technology).
