Over the course of three workshops, we’ll draw and create patterns using Processing, an open-source graphical library; we’ll learn and apply computational concepts to transform patterns and finally, we’ll bring a weaving to life with electronic microcontrollers. Participants must bring their own laptop but all other materials will be provided.
