About the event:
A workshop for textiles, fashionistas, coders, CMT’s Tech geeks and curious souls – join Jo-Ann Kowalski from Denmark
If you are keen to try out soft – circuit prototyping then this one is for you. Join us for a fascinating workshop where textiles, coding and tech are married. Get your hands on some smart textile materials to produce or reproduce a soft electronic circuit: sew connections, build buttons, and try to control LED’s and sensors with micro controllers. No special knowledge is required, beginners as well as advanced are welcome to test and share.
*People are also welcome to bring their laptop and a piece of fabric.
Seats are limited so please BOOK NOW! RSVP to email@example.com
Jo-Anne is a textile artist and designer, currently working for and with several artists and designers in Copenhagen. She has a Master’s degree from the Swedish School of Textiles in Borås, Sweden, in which she investigated textiles through a broad and conceptual path. She specialised in knitting techniques, and began to experiment with electronics and wearable technology. Since then, Jo-Anne has maintained her curiosity for the open source community and knowledge sharing. From small electronic projects, she began to develop ways to embed electronics into textiles. This began a reflection on how textiles can be designed to incorporate technology with production; and also the role of the artist in the process.
