I'm scheduled to teach an e-textiles workshop at the annual Vermont Art Teachers Association (VATA) conference on 29 September.
As part of this hands-on activity, I will be teaching some classroom-tested strategies for helping large groups of students to create their own light-up wearable cuffs, constructed with felt, conductive thread, and ring magnets.
Here is the link to my Light it Up: Fun with E-Textiles presentation.
If you are interested in learning more, I've also created a new Instructable (and accompanying video tutorial) detailing my process with students grades three through five. There, you'll find useful circuit diagrams and templates, as well as links to vital supplies.
