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.
TOG are exhibiting at the Irish Software Show, epicenter 2009 which begins this Wednesday in Trinity College, Dublin so if you’re in the area please pop in to meet us.
epicenter is a 3-day event covering Open Source, Web, Java and Microsoft – there are 80 technology sessions with evangelists coming in from the US, Canada, Spain, Austria, England, Scotland and Ireland. In addition to the technology sessions, Jennifer Condon (Head of Enterprise Ireland’s Software Sector), Barry Smyth (founder and CEO of ChangingWorlds which recently sold for $60m) and Colm Mulcahy (Co-founder Sasspoint) will deliver the morning keynotes – See http://epicenter.ie for full details.
TOG has a place to call home, we have just signed the lease on 3-room office space on Arran Quay. There will be plenty of space for everyone as we start to grow. It’s about 550 square foot with a bathroom and a shower. Soon we’ll start to distribute keys to full members and get people settled
