Learn how artists have embraced DIY culture in this hands-on workshop. Using basic drawing and sewing tools/methods, participants will create a working sewn circuit with conductive thread and LEDS, and contribute to a collaborative light drawing using conductive ink. Examples and themes in low-tech and do-it-yourself art practices will be discussed, including breaking gender-binary divides of skills and knowledge, demystifying technology-based art and craft, and creating light-based art with minimal materials.
