Free Circuit Workshop Series: Lynne Bruning

Intersection of Technology and Craft

22. June - 1. August 2016

A project by Lynne Bruning, creator of exclusive wearable art, eTextiles and adaptive technologies, will explore the whats, whys and hows of the connections among differing systems.


Conductive thread, conductive fabric, velostat, Arduino, breadboad, Attiny, LEDs, Surface Mount LED, esistor, vibration board, Maxbotix range finder, 3V coin cell battery, battery holder, multimeter and scissors


In her project, Lynne Bruning explores the synaptic junction between electronics and textiles, optimally leading to the development of new hardware and textile methodology for eTextiles, and for adapted traditional electronics hardware thru soldering, circuit making and prototyping, to integrate, fuse and interweave with traditional textiles.

About the host


Lynne Bruning creates exclusive wearable art, eTextiles, and adaptive technologies. Combining her BA in neurophysiology from Smith College, Masters in Architecture from the University of Colorado, and family history in textiles, Lynne teaches and lectures nationally and internationally. From Qatar to Slovenia and California to New York, her hands-on, electronic textile workshops infect textile artists, electrical engineers, and computer hacks with the love of wearable computing, and engender community-based eTextile groups. Lynne sustains this global eTextile community by filming How To Videos, contributing to Instructables, and hosting a monthly eTextile Lounge uStream: a global hacker space. Articles and interviews appear in Surface Design Journal, Forbes, and elsewhere; exhibitions include a Motion-Activated eTextile Garden at the Denver Art Museum (2013), and featured eTextile presence at Maker Faires (2009 – 2012). Lynne’s innovative, award-winning designs will inspire and challenge you to reimagine fabric using today's technologically complex and interactive surface designs.
