SoftCircuits gives new power to traditional artist materials such as paper. We now have the ability to use electronics within books and flat projects to give them movement, color change, light, and sound. In this workshop we'll be experimenting with conductive thread, ink, fabric, and tape as well as shape memory wire, thermocramatic inks, and LEDs. We'll also talk about how to use paper as the substrate for your circuits, and do some soldering while we're at it. In addition to these newer technologies we'll be combining traditional art methods such as drawing, painting, and basic binding. In the end we'll create small books and pieces that utilize these new materials. Come experiment and learn!
