This studio course introduces students to the creative and artistic potential of soft circuits and wearable media. Using construction techniques such as weaving, knitting and sewing, and technologies such as switches, sensors and conductive materials, students will create interactive garments and accessories that may be used for performance, display or for everyday use. Students will be introduced to basic electronics and sewing techniques. Studio work will be supported by demonstrations, slide presentations, video screenings, and critique. This is a qualifying course towards both the Certificate in Digital Media Skills and the Certificate in Art and Design Studio Skills. Cost: $350 + $50 material fee + HST to register click on the link.
At the Toronto Weaving School, you can advance your  knowledge of weaving, weave structures and equipment. If you need some assistance in determining what you'd like to learn about, speak to the instructor, Line Dufour. Line can provide you with a menu of various approaches, structures and samplers that will further your knowledge and experience in weaving. The course is tailored to your needs and the direction you want to take.
