Sewable Circuits

Partnership: DukeCreate & Co-Lab Roots

Taught by Sandra Bermond

About the Workshop

Join the Innovation Co-Lab for a basic introduction to sewing with conductive thread and LEDs.  You will build a simple circuit that when complete will illuminate the LEDs. No experience with sewing required! We’ll be sewing by hand and all materials will be provided. Take a break from looking at a computer screen and try this tactile form of creativity using technology. Each attendee will be able to bring their circuit home with them.

This class will be hosted via Zoom. You will receive an email with the Zoom link a day before the class. Attendance will be taken and the session will be recorded.
