Workshop „Sensing Through Fabric“ led by Mika Satomi (Japan/Sweden)
16.-18. April @ 10am
In these three days of hands-on workshop, we will experiment with various conductive textile materials together with Arduino/Lilypad to get familiarized with the characteristics of fabric sensors and soft circuitry to serve as a new medium for your future expression. We will explore construction of various fabric sensors such as bend, stretch and tilt, and textile circuitry techniques. During the workshop, participants are encouraged to come up with their own fabric sensor ideas and build functional prototypes. The aim of the workshop is to understand how to sense our body movements through fabric sensors and to learn how to use them in creative projects.
Please take with you the following:
-Scissors (if you have, also fabric scissors)
-needle and basic sewing tools
-laptop with arduino software installed
