Tech+Textile: An Introduction to Wearable Electronics Workshop
Learn the basics of making your own wearable electronics! Join Adafruit's Becky Stern for a hands-on tech+textile workshop using the FLORA Arduino-compatible microcontroller.  Get an up-close look at many of the electronic fashions showcased in Adafruit's tutorials (Becky will bring a garment rack of goodies for show and tell), and get a glimpse of the vast creative possibilities of the FLORA platform. Then dive in with your own FLORA Budget Pack for a guided intro to programming your own colorful LED animations.  You'll leave the workshop inspired to incorporate electronics into your own designs, and with enough momentum to be able to follow/customize any Adafruit FLORA tutorial!

Then take home the Flora Budget Pack, included in your workshop fee at a discounted rate! ($44.95 Value)
