Colab Summer Workshop Series

This week in New Zealand I have been teaching workshops for the Colab Summer Workshop Series. I taught an inflatables workshop, an EL wire workshop, a fabric deployable structures workshop, and a sewing soft circuits workshop. Below are some images from the EL wire and sewing soft circuits workshop. I’ll post some photos from the other workshops later this week.

For the Sewing Soft Circuits workshop, I made a pattern that I thought would be versatile enough for the students to put in different garments. One of the students brought in a beautiful handmade felt to stitch her circuit on. I thought the weight of the felt was very nice.

Below are some garments made in the EL wire workshop.
