About the workshop
This beginner-friendly class will introduce participants to the popular microcontroller Gemma. Designed with wearables in mind, Gemma is a small but powerful platform that makes integration of technology, lights and electronics into fashion and art possible. The class will cover Flora operations and design, basic Gemma programming, and student will create their own wearable creation. We will be using conductive thread to sew Light emitting diodes (Neopixels) onto fabric to create a light changing bracelet or broch that they will program to change colors or blink in a pattern of their choice. We will also use conductive paint and conductive tape to add an extra dimension of creativity to their project. If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to integrate lights and technology into wearables and fashion but didn’t know where to start – this class is for you.
