Future Textile Library Workshop Series: Connecting Data to textiles

Time: NOVEMBER 10, 4:00PM-5:30PM

Location: 525 W 120th St, New York 

This workshop will teach the basics of creating wearable design with data. Students will learn how to collect data and integrate and transmit this information to create smart apparel via sensory technology, Arduino programming, and web development. By the end of the workshop, students will have developed a wearable e-textile swatch that collects data from the wearer’s body movements and then visualizes the data on a web app.

Future Textile Library Workshop Series: KINETIC TEXTILES

Time: DECEMBER 1, 4:00 -5:30 PM

Location: 525 W 120th St, New York 

This workshop will explore the relationship between sound and textiles, in the form of a kinetic e-textile swatch. Students will learn how to generate movement in textiles using magnets and copper wire, as well as mic sensor to capture sound which actuates movements. Preprogrammed wearable microcontrollers will be provided for sound input, and the students will be primarily learning how to physically construct, sew, and embed kinetic components into the textile. By the end of the workshop, students will have developed an e-textile swatch that can kinetically move to sound.
