In this workshop, lead by Becky Stewart, participants will experiment with different materials and learn how to build switches and pressure sensors from conductive textiles. We will introduce a few different e-textile techniques and discuss where to get materials and help for your own projects, to integrate these sensors into garments to capture body movement and create soundscapes from this data.
Workshop beginning at 7:30pm on Thursday the 25th of January. You can book your place here
