Workshop: Wearable Tech and Arduino
Wednesday 12 December, 5.30-8pm
THIS WORKSHOP IS NOW FULLY BOOKED
Led by multimedia artist Sophie Hedderwick, this workshop will introduce you to working with wearable technology and using Arduino software and hardware.
Sophie will begin by explaining a range of different sensors and applications by talking through a range of her projects, and those of other makers who use e-textiles.
This will be followed by a practical session covering basic principles – each participant will be given a kit with coloured felt, conductive thread, a battery pack, a home-made switch, and LED lights. You will learn how to sew a simple circuit to produce a light up bracelet with a working switch.
Spaces are limited, and priority will be given to STEAMhouse members or self employed creatives or creative businesses who are based in the GBSLEP region.
To book a spot email firstname.lastname@example.org – if you are not a STEAMhouse member please tell us a little bit about yourself and why you want to participate.
Sophie Hedderwick is a multimedia artist working with smart textiles to produce photography, both analogue and digital, film, animation and VR. Her work explores relational movement and mapping affect in immersive technologies, using a feminist praxis. She is currently a part time PhD researcher at Birmingham School of Art, BCU, funded by M3C/AHRC.
