Meeting the Challenge

Los Angeles ladies are up for any challenge. In our (what is now low tech) world, adding electronics to fiber art works is a strange and new thing, but 15 ladies, members of Wearable Arts Connection (and some with joint membership in Surface Art Association) got their foot in the door of electronic textiles. We started with one of the oldest processes, wet felting, by making a nuno felted scarf. The warm California sun dried the pieces over lunch then we added an led light by stitching a circuit with conductive yarn. From scrolling the art work on their web pages it is clear that the ladies are already creating beautiful pieces. I can’t wait to see what they do next.
