Knowle West Media Centre, Leinster Avenue, Bristol, UK
10:30 am - 4:30 pm
Did you know that you can make sensors with yarns and fabrics?
Join E-Stitches Bristol to make a custom DIY sensor using electric fabrics and conducive threads.
Together we’ll learn how to sew and knit sensors that sense movement and motion, then make this data visual using an Arduino. No previous experience is required!
For further information please contact Martha on 0117 903 0444 or e-mail email@example.com
There is a £5 suggested donation for the workshop (payable on the day) but you can attend for free. Knowle West Media Centre is a registered charity that supports people who have had the least opportunity to engage in creative activities that can change their lives and shape their communities. All donations all currently matches by Arts Council England through their Catalyst Evolve programme, doubling their value to us.
This event is part of a live programme to accompany KWMC’s Commons Sense exhibition, which is open from May – September 2018. Digital sensors are all around: every day things are ‘sensed’ by smart technologies. But what data can and should be collected? Is it used for the common good or corporate gain? Commons Sense is an interactive exhibition exploring sensors, data and ‘the commons’, made in collaboration with artists Becca Rose and Pete Bennett.Book
