Community Class

Open to ages 7 to adult. Parents of young children with limited sewing experience may wish to attend together.

Like the idea of adding lights to clothing, accessories or soft objects or stuffies? This class is for you. We’ll explore new materials like conductive thread that enable us to make soft circuits to illuminate fabric and textiles. We’ll learn about circuits, conductivity, polarity, how to create switches, various ways to wire projects.

We’ll also look at how these very same techniques are being used in wearables and in new products, from consumer products like activity sensors, to biomedical devices. This is a sewing circle on steroids.

*Previous sewing experience is helpful but not necessary. We’ll stick to the running stitch.
