If you’re in the UK this summer check out the DressCode e-textiles workshop:

DressCode is an e-textiles and electronics workshop where participants will sew LED lights into their clothing to make interactive costumes that react the sounds and music around them. Using conductive thread to sew electrical connections into the fabric of masks, t-shirts, gloves, leggings and hats, participants will learn basic electronics as well as sewing skills. The workshop will be first held at Shambala Festival 2013 and is open to people or all ages, abilities and interests. The project is in collaboration with Vincent Akkermans and Sophie McDonald of MzTek, and Hannah Perner-Wilson and Mika Satomi of kobakant.

Participants can bring there own garments be hacked into reactive costumes but we will also be providing materials and templates for masquerade masks. Hannah and Mika used these templates to create two beautiful masks made from felt and decorated with feathers and gems. The LEDs were sewn on with electrical connections made though chain-stitched gold and silver conductive thread.
