During the workshop  starting from simple patterns will learn  to sew circuits, to embed sensors and actuators in textiles and to program their behaviour. Arduino LilyPad is a microcontroller board designed to be embedded in the clothes and textile electronic. It can be sewed to the cloth and, combined with batteries, sensors and devices of interaction with conductive thread. We will be able to realise  and program devices Smart Textiles like musical instruments, interactive curtains, hats, pieces that light up according to environmental changes etc.
