Tech+Textile: An Introduction to Wearable Electronics Workshop in NYC

sparkle-skirt-thumbnail

Hey everybody, I’m doing a FLORA workshop as part of Eyebeam’s Computational Fashion series of events! The workshop will take place at SVA’s Visible Futures Lab and is geared towards designers and crafters with little to no electronics/programming experience. Tech+Textile: An Introduction to Wearable Electronics Workshop:

Learn the basics of making your own wearable electronics! Join Adafruit’s Becky Stern for a hands-on tech+textile workshop using the FLORA Arduino-compatible microcontroller. Get an up-close look at many of the electronic fashions showcased in Adafruit’s tutorials (Becky will bring a garment rack of goodies for show and tell), and get a glimpse of the vast creative possibilities of the FLORA platform. Then dive in with your own FLORA Budget Pack for a guided intro to programming your own colorful LED animations. You’ll leave the workshop inspired to incorporate electronics into your own designs, and with enough momentum to be able to follow/customize any Adafruit FLORA tutorial!

Then take home the Flora Budget Pack, included in your workshop fee at a discounted rate!

Limited enrollment– sign up now before this workshop fills up!

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
