In this two-part workshop, we will introduce participants to basic soft circuits using sewable modular input sensors (light, temperature… ) & output displays (light, sound…) with the Adafruit GEMMA microcontroller.
In the first session we will examine the electronic i/o modules, discuss design ideas, assemble basic circuits and begin some basic programming. We will also learn various hand-sewing techniques for integrating our components into textiles.
The following week we will refine our programming and draw out our circuits in Adobe Illustrator to then translate onto textiles using the digital thread placement machine in the Textiles & Materiality research cluster.
This is an introductory workshop with no prerequites in sewing or electronics.
Instructors: Marc Beaulieu & Geneviève Moisan
