Wearable Glowing Patch Workshop @ InventHQ

  • InventHQ - Broomfield Library Makerspace (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Make a customized glowing patch using Electroluminescent (EL) panels! Design your own fabric stencils with Silhouette cutting machines to cover up parts of square light-up panels to create customized designs. You'll learn how to design a fabric stencil mask and use the cutting machines, soldering, and how to best plan for electronics to be integrated into a fabric project. The patches can then be attached to clothing, backpacks, and more. No soldering or electronics experience required. Each participant will have a chance to create their own 4"x4" light-up patch. Feel free to bring along an item you would like to attach it to.

Fashion Hacking For Augmented Identity

Fashion Hacking For Augmented Identity

Available to SXSW Platinum and Interactive Badge holders.

As technology becomes more pervasive in our style choices, how can we think beyond simple customization or apps to truly own outward identity? In this workshop we will examine how artists and innovators are thinking beyond consumer wearables to larger identity issues that can be addressed by our choice of apparel and accessories. We will explore the ways the design community is expanding, hacking, and creating through open source technology. When the fashion and technology industries begin to collaborate, what opportunities do these open platforms create for the future of self expression? Participants will explore some of these ideas through customizing a wearable electronic project to augment their interactions with the world.

Presenters: Angela Sheehan and Mary West
