Studio subTela workshop at Swedish School of Textiles
08
Jan '08
Hexagram visit The Swedish School of Textiles in Borås for a five days hands on workshop.

The workshop ill contain practical work where we will embed LED into woven structures that can be controlled individually.

Every participant (or if you want to work in small groups) will create their own piece and later the pieces will be put together into a common Interactive Wall Hanging.

The workshop week is planned to contain some lectures in the morning concerning weaving with conductive materials, constructions and embedding and controlling of LED.

Most of the day will consist of practical work and design. For the workshop we will have a number of handlooms prepared and electronics needed.

Workshop Goals:
Four members of Studio subTela will present a hands-on workshop that blends art and technology, by weaving electronic components into flexible fabrics.

The workshop will address technical, aesthetic and artistic/design issues including:
- An introduction to basic electronics and designing simple circuits
- The development of soft circuitry by weaving and sewing conductive threads into fabrics (using hand looms and a power loom)
- The creation of light-emitting fabrics with LEDs (light emitting diodes)
- A discussion and demonstration on microcontrollers and the use of sensing devices to trigger interactive responses

Presentations of projects developed by different artists and designers in the Interactive Textiles and Wearable Computing axe at the Hexagram Institute.
