Introduction to eTextiles and soft circuits
At the Art School at Laguna Gloria
Come and explore the nascent field of eTextiles and make your art shine, literally. eTextiles, or soft circuits, are fabrics where electronics are incorporated—they can be sewn, woven or knitted. For this introductory class we will focus on hand sewing with LEDs, but the concepts learned can be applied to woven or knitted cloth. We will explore different ways of making LEDs light up and flicker—a light-up bracelet, a tilt-switch pin and a touch sensor.
