Mainframe Workshop: Sewable + Paper Electronics, w/ Jordan Smith

When: July 20th, 6-9 pm

Where: 72 Harbour Dr


Jordan Smith is back with another Mainframe workshop! On July 20th, from 6-9 pm, learn how to bring your textiles to life with LEDs, conductive fabric and conductive thread!

Circuits don’t have to use wires and circuit boards – they can be made of many conductive materials. This workshop will explore the different uses of conductive threads, fabrics, and tapes through embroidery, drawing, and collage. 

Supplies will be provided but feel free to bring your own fibre arts or paper projects in this hands-on workshop. No existing electronics, textiles or paper craft experience is needed. This workshop is FREE to attend, and no pre-registration is required. If you have any questions or comments, email
