Soft Circuits: Pulp Based Computing; Making Paper with Electronics Inside

Liz Taylor will lead a series of classes dedicated to soft circuits and their application. Making paper has been a traditional crafty workshop topic for many years, but now we can bridge new gaps by making paper with electronics inside.  We’ll learn the process of making the paper, embedding electronics such as lights, speakers, and sensors, and completing the circuitry.

Pulp Based Computing; Making Paper with Electronics Inside

Thu/Fri, Sep 29-30, 6:30pm to 9:30pm

Making paper has been a traditional crafty workshop topic for many years, but now we can bridge new gaps by making paper with electronics inside.  We’ll learn the process of making the paper, embedding electronics such as lights, speakers, and sensors, and completing the circuitry.  Come experiment in this new field and learn the how to work with these new materials.
This will be a two part class because of the drying process involved.  In the first part of the class we’ll be making the paper, adding the electronics, and letting it dry.  During the second part of the class we’ll be testing our paper, troubleshooting, and then transforming our paper into new works by cutting and glueing and adding a few other tricks.  For any one with unsuccessful paper, they’ll have the second half of class as a chance to remake their paper.
Please bring a cookie sheet with you to class to dry your paper on!!
