Learn the basics of Arduino coding and electronic textiles in this hands-on workshop.

What to expect

Join designer Giulia Tomasello and enter the world of wearable technology. Learn the basics of Auduino coding, electronics and programming for electronic sensors.

Combine traditional textile techniques with new technologies and produce your own proto-type to take away. Coding will be completed using open-source platforms, so you can continue to develop your projects at home.

All materials will be provided as a part of the workshop and no prior knowledge or experience of coding or textiles are required. Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptops if they have one, although this is not essential.

Participants also have access to the Design Museum’s current exhibition Moving to Mars on the day of the workshop.

This workshop is part of Coded Bodies, an ongoing series of workshops developed by Giulia Tomasello in wearable technology and soft-textiles.
