Ever wanted a glowing hat that you could switch on at night? Wanted to "lighten up" and share a little glow that reflects your mood?
Learn how to create interactive Luminous Headwear! (Beanies, Bowlers, Fascinators, Steampunk Top Hats etc that light up) in this latest session of Illuminart's Interactive Textiles Workshop Series.
Your completed hats will exhibited during the LUMINOUS TRAIL EXHIBITION being presented by Illuminart during the South Australian Living Artists Festival 2013, and the creators may be invited to present their completed hybrid/electronic garments at other future events. And naturally you'll want to wear them to heaps of great events too. http://projects.illuminart.com.au/project/luminous-art-trail/
Who is it for?
Great for textile artists interested in what lights, circuits or electronics could add to enhance your work... great for fashion students or designers exploring the potential of changing practice... great for hobbyists who want to get some new skills... and excellent for anyone interested in combining vastly different disciplines in a new and exciting way.
