    DressCode Workshop Shambala

    Friday 23 August, 11am – 5pm, Shambala Festival, Market Harborough, Leicestershire

    In this workshop participants will sew LED lights into their clothing, making interactive costumes that react with flashing lights and light sequences to the beat of the music. Using conductive thread to sew electrical connections into the fabric of masks, t-shirts, gloves, leggings and hats participants will learn basic electronics as well as sewing skills. This workshop is open to people or all ages, abilities and interests.

    In collaboration with MzTek and x-IO.
