Syuzi Pakhchyan, author of Fashioning Technology, will be hosting a soft circuit workshop in Los Angeles on February 22!
The first half of the workshop will be an overview of different conductive textiles and threads available commercially as well as a demo of a variety of soft switches, sensors and controls. For the second part of the workshop, we will be deconstructing an electronic toy and using it to create a wearable. The wearable will be constructed using soft circuit techniques introduced earlier in the class. The class should be casual and fun. Sunday, February 22nd, 11-4pm

This book demonstrates how to blend sewing and assembly techniques with traditional electronics to assemble simple circuits using conductive thread, solder joints for snaps, and switches for buttons. With the sewing machine as a viable substitute for the soldering iron, you can craft a new generation of objects that are interactive, quirky, and fashion-conscious.
