Electrocraft: Illuminated wall hangings workshop

Design and make a light-up star constellation artwork using a soft circuit

Produced by the City of Sydney

Learn how to design and create a soft circuit artwork in this workshop at the new Darling Square Library.

Soft circuits are electrical circuits created using conductive textiles with discrete electronics components like lights, batteries, switches and sensors. Over 5 hours, you’ll discover the endless possibilities for integrating soft circuits into textiles using conductive thread and LEDs.

Led by expert facilitator Laura Jade, you’ll use techniques at the forefront of emerging trends in textiles and technology.

At the end, you’ll get to take home your very own small hand-embroidered, illuminated star constellation wall hanging
