Have you ever wanted to make clothing that lights up? In this class we'll introduce you to a few simple electronics that you can use to make wearable items embedded with LED lights. This class will provide some time to work on hand-sewing skills with embroidery thread and felt. We'll also learn how to paper prototype our projects and lay out the electronic components.
