TOG does Electronic Fashion

We will be holding two electronic fashion workshops over the weekend of Innovation Dublin week.  These workshops will be hosted in our space on Arran Quay on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th of October from 2pm to 6pm.

There will be a €15 (€12 students/unwaged, €10 TOG members) participation fee to take part in the workshops.  Non-members are welcome to participate in the workshops.

The participation fee includes a basic electroluminescent wire kit and an item of clothing from an Irish menswear fashion label which is a canvas for your creations.  A range of sewing materials (including conductive wire), extra el wire, LilyPad’s and other electronic devices will be available for use during the workshop.

No experience of electronics or sewing is required, though it would help.

The number of places in each workshop will be limited to 12, so please reserve a place by posting a comment to this blog post, giving details of which workshop you would like to attend.

Participants and visitors must be at least 18 years of age.

Getting to the space. The space is located above the Voodoo Card Club on Array Quay, which is on the north-side of the river approximately 15 minutes walk form O’Connell Street Bridge or couple of minutes walk from the Smithfield Luas stop. Also see the map for more details.

The building number is 40 and we are on the 2nd Floor. To gain access to the building please press the number 2 intercom, please speak up as the noise from traffic can make it hard to hear, but we can then buzzer you into the building. Then the fun begins. ;)
