Workshop Light in Textiles

Let your clothes light up at night. E-textiles designer Melissa Coleman will introduce the exciting field of LEDs (regular, super bright, power, smd), electroluminescent (EL) wire and optic fibers discussing the pros and cons of each and giving useful tips for incorporating these in textiles. This will be followed by an introduction into soft circuits using conductive threads and fabrics.
