This fall the Learning Technologies Center at the Science Museum of Minnesota is collaborating with the Textile Center to offer High Fashion Low Voltage. The class introduces the Lilypad , developed by Leah Buechley, to the low tech textile community. Seven women signed up after seeing the class listing in the Textile Center fall catalog. The students come from a range of textile arts backgrounds including sewing, tapestry, weaving and professional clothing design. No electronics experience or programing was required to take the class. Programing expertise is provided by Clement Shimizu, PhD in computer science, who is in working with artists.
