Join us for a fun beginners workshop on adding lights and electronics to your wearable items.
We’ll show you how to embellish your own custom fascinator headband, with colour-changing LEDs, and laser-cut fabric decorations. This workshop is the perfect opportunity to take your first steps in electronics, coding, and laser cutting, and suitable for anyone with an interest in fashion.
Our workshops are always fun and easy-going and this time we’ll be offering a glass of prosecco on arrival, and refreshments throughout, including hot and cold drinks and snacks.
Not only will you leave the workshop with a fabulous light-up fascinator, but you’ll also have learned a bunch of new skills, so you can continue to work on your fascinator and other wearable projects when you get home!
This event is part of the Fabric District Festival.
