Ever wanted to upcycle that old hoodie you have in the back of the wardrobe but been short on ideas? Then come and join us for this workshop and learn how to create your very own Tron style hoodie!

We will work with Electroluminescent wire (EL wire), sewing it into the hood of a garment of your choice. We recommend for you to bring a black hoodie, but other dark colours will be fine too.

For information or to get more of an idea, you can watch this tutorial by Adafruit who recommend this great idea for a Halloween costume.
