During this workshop, instructor Haerim Lee will introduce themes of botanical illustration while incorporating soft circuitry skills through an LED lighting component. Participants will learn how to create soft circuitry and build their own embroidery piece integrating natural fabric sources with LED lighting.
Participants will be provided with all materials to make an electronic textile piece. Plant Chicago’s indoor and outdoor gardens will serve as inspiration for botanical embroidery designs.
Please see below for an important note about in-person workshops with Plant Chicago during this time.
