Schools out, so to celebrate, we’ve got free hands-on making sessions for kids. They’ll have fun while they get creative with wearable electronics. Kids can BYO imagination and get constructing.
Led by Bobbin and Ink, the workshops show kids how to work with conductive thread, battery power and LEDs. They’ll create a light-up felt badge to take home.
They’ll get a hands-on introduction to the incredible world of electrocraft. They’ll make simple circuits using fibre and electricity.
