All levels welcome.

This workshop will explore the relationship between sound and textiles, in the form of a kinetic e-textile swatch. Students will learn how to generate movement in textiles using magnets and copper wire, as well as mic sensor to capture sound which actuates movements. Preprogrammed wearable microcontrollers will be provided for sound input, and the students will be primarily learning how to physically construct, sew, and embed kinetic components into the textile. By the end of the workshop, students will have developed an e-textile swatch that can kinetically move to sound.

All levels welcome.

This is an introductory course in which students will gain an understanding of the circuit technology used in clothing design to create e-textiles. Students can expect to come away with a basic knowledge of completing circuits, conductivity, and resistance. During the workshop, students will learn how to integrate these technologies and materials to design an interactive t-shirt.
