Tajima Under Pressure
Instructors: Gen Moisan + Alex Bachmayer
Who: T&M Members
When: Monday, March 29th, 13h30-16h30 EST (Zoom) + 3 hour session (TBD amongst workshop participants)
In this workshop you are going to learn about basic soft electronic circuits and Arduino coding. You are going to experiment and program a file for the Tajima laying machine to lay conductive thread and make your own DIY pressure sensor. The pressure applied to the sensor will be recorded by a small micro-controller board and then made visible using an RGB neopixel light.
Two online sessions over two weeks with some Illustrator design work in between. After completion, you will receive or pick-up your embroidered circuit with your sensor and electronic kit.
Drawing with Threads, Merit of Making (and if possible, In the Loop).
Software Prerequisites: Adobe Illustrator
This workshop is free of charge. Spaces limited.
