Did you know that you could sew a circuit?

E-textiles are the use of sewable circuits, LEDs and sound in textiles and can become a new and creative method for teaching about circuits and electronics.

Have a go at making your own circuit with LEDs and find out more about the project recently delivered at the Shipley Art Gallery.

It’s a lovely skill and might give you the opportunity to teach electronics and circuits in a more creative way.

Guest contributors: Counterpoints Arts as part of the Migration Museum, more TBC

Join fellow museum educators and engagers to discuss the role of the museum in the migration crisis.
