Saturday 22nd of January at VoidWarranties

the workshops starts at 14:00

what

This workshop will teach people how to sew LEDs down with conductive thread, to add some lights to their clothing.
This is a great way to learn the basics of parallel/series circuits, polarity, resistance, hand-sewing, etc.
Your space will be left with a decent quantity of conductive thread afterwards as well, which can be used for pretty much anything.

Examples of applications:
Flex resistor jacket dance
Tweetshirt by Steffest
Lilypad
Leah Buechley
EL Wire

fee

Participation will be free for hackerspace members (0x20,HSBxl,Voidwarranties) except for material costs...
Non-Members that want to participate actively are asked to make a 5 euro contribution to the space hosting the event.
Everybody is welcome to come and have a look at the workshop.

Details on material cost will follow soon.
