Modern costume design is more than sewing and makeup. Programmable microcontrollers, designed for use in clothing and props, have opened up new avenues of creativity. This companion workshop to our popular Cosplay: Costume Design and Creation workshop, focuses on programming and wiring wearable electronics. Students will learn to design props and costume elements that include microcontrollers, conductive thread, LEDs, and other components specially designed for use in textiles. Programming basics will be taught in order to allow students to add lights, sound, and motion to their Cosplay character.
This course is open to students entering Grades 8 through 12.
Workshop hours are Monday-Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Students should arrive no more than 30 minutes prior to the start of class. There are free optional after-workshop activities most days from 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm.*
*Due to the July 4th holiday, Session 2 hours will be 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. After-workshop activities will be from 5:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.
