Making Lightup Wearables - An Intro to E-textiles!

Youth Workshop by Dervla O'Brien (she/her) 🎟

Saturday from 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM in Youth Workshop

In this session we will follow along step by step to make light-up bracelets and badges for kids using some simple sew-on electronics and conductive thread! Each attendee should leave with a light-up bracelet or safety badge which they have put together themselves and then decorated. During the workshop we will also talk about the basics of both sewing and electronic circuits, explaining how to complete a running stitch and how a current flows through a simple circuit to turn on the LED light. Note: we will be using sewing needles and scissors, so parent or guardian supervision is important!
