Let’s sew some electronics

Cyber Palace is excited to present a four session course in fashion technology. In this course you will learn about electronic circuits through a series of craft projects. Create an embroidery that lights up, sew a bracelet that changes with movements, make creative projects that react to light, temperature and movement. Over a series of four workshops you will gain an understanding of how to create wearable technologies. This is an introductory course and no previous experience in electronics or sewing is required.

This course is for marginalised genders. We encourage people of all skill level and experience to apply.

In this course you will:

  • Gain an understanding of basic electronics circuits, including using LEDs and sensors.
  • Get an introduction to programming concepts
  • Learn about different sensing technology
  • Sew your own electronic circuits.
  • Create a range of projects that combine electronics and craft.
  • Have fun learning about soft circuitry and fashion technology.

We will be documenting everyone’s creations and creating a booklet at the end of the series of courses.

All materials are included in the ticket price of $100.  We offer a concession price of $80.

This course runs three times throughout the year.  Click here to apply via our application form
