Noisy Textiles Workshop is an introduction to the world of soft, textile electronic sets with the use of programmable Arduino microcontrolers, digital electronics and  conductive materials. During the workshop the participants will take part in creating prototypes and they will explore the process of application of electronics to textile, creating wearable synthesisers/controlers with an 8-byte sound, that is, playing on clothes.
