Electronics are often hard and made of plastic, but of course that is not necessary. In this course you will learn the basics of electronics and how to apply it to different types of conductive yarns and materials. For example, learn to embroider your own buttons, make a cuddly lamp or provide your outfit with a bright accent.
In addition to sewing by hand and with the sewing machine, you will learn how to solder electronic components and how to make your own battery holder.
Suitable for everyone!
Whether you get inspiration from the world of drag queens and kings, the world of cosplay or whether you want to see old techniques in a new light: the course is suitable for everyone! You don't need to have any prior knowledge or background in electronics or programming, but if you do there is more than enough to challenge you.
Basic materials are included, additional materials are available or for sale. For example, you need a microcontroller to control multi-colored LED lighting. For this you can purchase a BBC Micro-bit GO kit at VRIJDAG. It is necessary that you bring your own laptop.
