September 20: Interaccess Media Arts Centre “Intro to Xbee”

October 6 – November 11th: OCAD University Continuing Studies “Intro to Wearable Media” – a 6 week course

December (exact date TBA): Interaccess Media Arts Centre “Soft Circuits”

January (exact date TBA): Interaccess Media Arts Centre “Intro to Lilypad Arduino”


Another month passes. Somewhere in the blur of thesis studies and working, the Wearables Open Studio has crept up on me. This Wednesday from 7-10pm, meet me at Interaccess Media Arts Centre for some e-geekery with soft circuits and e-textiles.

I co-taught a Lilypad Arduino workshop tonight at Interaccess with my perfectly nerdy colleague Ken Leung.  Here he is giving a lesson in coding to eager participants.  You can’t tell by the backs of their heads, but they are in love with microcontrollers now.

...and then he says "avrdude is not your friend"

Next month –just a few days away, I know– I’ll be teaching some workshops on Wearable Tech alongside my colleague Ken Leung, at Interaccess Electronic Media Arts Centre. The first workshop will cover the fundamentals of building soft circuits for wearing on the body, while the second will be an introduction to the Lilypad Arduino and an intro to coding the Arduino environment. You can check out the full workshop descriptions here, as well as read more about the InterAccess workshop series.
