#221 Beginning Soft Circuits: The Pendulum Pin by Gail Hollinger, Thursday 9 am to noon
Experience: Basic hand sewing
Workshop Description: If you love bling, you are going to love Soft Circuits, lighting up your textiles and clothing with conductive thread and tiny, LED lights! All you need are some basic hand sewing skills. We will be making a pin with a pendulum which lights up the twinkling LEDs as it swings with your body’s movements. People will be amazed! The pin itself will be constructed from fabric and paper. Once you learn the basics of Soft Circuits (which includes some simple-to-understand electronics theory), you can begin adding lights to hats, clothing, handbags, pretty much anything you can sew through.
Participants should bring: Pair of sharp scissors
Material Fee: $15 Conductive thread, coin cell holder/switch, coin cell battery, LED lights, needles, fabric, paper, and a bound booklet of instructions.
Class Limit: 12
