Fashioning Technology Workshops

We are super excited to receive support from the Brisbane City Council’s Creative Sparks Fund to bring you a series of workshops in soft circuitry and e-textiles.ย  Aimed at marginalised genders, this is a hands on course in which participants will learn about fashion tech through creating craft and wearable projects that fuse fashion and electronics including embedding lights and sensors into a range of projects.

Cyber Palace is excited to present this course in fashion technology. In this course you will learn about electronic circuits through a series of craft projects. Create an embroidery that lights up, sew a bracelet or necklace that changes with movements, make creative projects that react to light, temperature and movement. Over a series of four workshops you will gain an understanding of how to create wearable technologies. This is an introductory course and no previous experience in electronics or sewing is required.

This course is for marginalised genders. We encourage people of all skill level and experience to apply. Applications are open until the 10th of May and we will confirm the participants by the 17th of May

This facebook event is for the application date for all the three courses. The course runs on Saturdays. To apply please express your interest and availability via this form –
