We have invited Afroditi Psarra from Athens to host this exciting three-day workshop at the public library in Bergen.
Time: Monday 19. November – Wednesday 21. November. 4PM- 8PM
Who can attend: Young people between the ages 16 and 22. Anyone who is interested in Arduino programming, e-textiles, 8-bit music and DIY electronics. No necessary background in programming is required.
This workshop consists of an introduction to Arduino programming through the creation of a simple embroidered synthesizer. The participants are going to engage in the process of prototyping and building DIY electronics on textile using various components – such as LEDs, resistors, sensors, buttons and buzzers, and conductive materials such as conductive thread and conductive fabric. Through the construction of an embroidered synthesizer the participants will get familiar with the concept of electronic textiles and soft-circuits and their use in fashion, art and performance, while experimenting on 8-bit sound.
