I’m leading a “Make Your Halloween Costume Light Up” workshop on Saturday, Oct. 25th from 10:00 Am – 1:00 PM – a fun easy and fun introduction to electronics with no previous sewing experience required!
You’ll learn how to sew an electrical circuit with metallic thread and wearable LEDS into your Halloween costume to create a stand out costume! Bring your costume and we’ll have a sewing machine, sewable leds, wearable battery holders, scissors, a hot glue station, metal thread and other supplies as well as experienced wearable designers to help you think through your design and teach you how to create a wearable circuit. This workshop will take place in the basement of the Youth Community Development Center (behind the Blessed Sacrament Church) at 361 Centre Street in Jamaica Plain and is recommended for children 10+ and adults. Cost is $15.00 per person payable on the day of the event and the registration deadline is Wednesday, October 22nd at midnight. E-mail any questions to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Here’s a photo of a jacket that we sewed a spooky spider on.
