Stay tuned for more designs! The closer we get to Maker Faire!
Makers are invited to combine traditional craft and tech by hand-sewing a bracelet and using electronics to make it light up. During this 30-minute workshop, each participant will make a soft plushie bracelet using conductive thread, LEDs, and laser-cut fabric. Each maker will be given a starter kit that contains all the materials they’ll need to create a bracelet.
Workshops will run all day Saturday and Sunday. Instructors will be on hand to help guide makers through the process. This project is suitable for makers age 8 and up. Makers under age 12 should be accompanied by a parent.
