2019 Fashion Technology & Design Summer Camp

Fuse creativity with innovation as you explore the exciting world of wearable technology.

Camps for middle and high schoolers at select locations in New York and Massachusetts

In these summer courses you will delve into the four pillars of wearable tech: design, engineering, construction and sustainability – learning conceptual design and how to refine your ideas, you will gain hands-on experience with pattern-drafting and construction, learn how to program with Lilypad Arduinos and Flora microcontrollers and explore the fundamentals of electrical engineering, bio-fabrication and prototyping.

Students learn the actual techniques that are needed to be fashion designers and then use their creativity to solve real world dilemmas, working through iterative design cycles from concept to final prototype. For their capstone project, students create a unique piece of wearable technology that improves the world around us.

Taught by Clare Tattersall, founder of ThunderLily 

Students need to bring a Mac Laptop or PC with Windows 8.1 or 10 to class. Laptop needs USB port.
