E-Textiles: Electronic Bag hands-on workshop
Bags work hard to carry our belongings, but how about a smart bag that can tell you when you've forgotten your handphone, or turn on a light to help you search for your belongings, or just light up in a really cool way? This class will equip you with machine sewing and electronic sewing skills so that you can make your own electronic bag.
3hrs x 4 sessions
In this class that merges art and science, participants will learn how to stitch on light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and use conventional sewing components as electrical switches. After learning machine sewing techniques, participants will design and make a bag that incorporates an electrical circuit. So if you fancy a smart bag that reminds you when you’ve forgotten something, or turns on a light to help you search for your belongings, or just lights up in a really cool way, this is the class for you!
