We had an fantastic day at FutureEverything's HandMade event in the amazing historical Victoria Baths in Manchester. As part of the Open Design Research Group, Brunel University, alongside @rob_dPhillips, @Weft_Lab ran some exciting soft circuit making workshops and ain interactive question on werable technologies.
A very busy day with lots of enthusiastic makers and contributors. WeftLab ran a electronic textile letter making workshop in which participants created a textile letter with a simple electronic circuit and an LED, where each letter accumulated to the co-creation of the Alpha-L.E.Dress. Now we have the fun 'cryptic' task of configuring a tweet out of the light up letters! Thank you to everyone for taking part and your contribution to make this a big success. We had many positive comments and lots of support. If anyone is interested the workshop project, we have the instructions available as a pdf - please drop us a tweet or email.
