E-Textiles / Wearable Technology Workshop – WexSci Science Festival

Thursday, 16th November 2017 - 10:30am

E-Textiles / Wearable Technology Workshop with TEKcentral.

E-textiles, also known as smart garments/clothing, are fabrics that enable digital components such as a battery, light (including small computers) and electronics to be embedded into them. During this workshop for adults, we will use a programmable electronic sewable system to create a t-shirt with an electronic twist! The electronic components are embedded into the fabric using conductive thread. This allows the creator to imagine and bring to life, an interactive t-shirt and should spark the imagination for other possibilities within e-clothing, accessories, or other textile-based products.

Suitable for adults. Please phone Wexford Town Library on 053 919 6760 to book a place. Should you require any supports to fully participate in this event, please contact the Librarian.
