Soft Circuit Badges: Adding L.E.D Lights to Felting Projects
Felted Soft Circuit Badges
Felted Soft Circuit badges are created by wet or needle felting a 3D or 3D artwork. When completed, l.e.d lights and a battery holder are sewn in.
In this project, you can explore arts and STEM subjects at the same time which makes a great cross curricular project for teachers. This project is a simple way to teach the basics of how electricity works, minus safety concerns. We hosted this workshop at the ADST Summit in 2019. This project was also featured in the ITA Youth Maker Club Manual
Not a teacher? that's ok! This project is great for anyone who wants to create a funky stand out broche that'll get everyone talking!
Here are some felted badge projects created by curious creators, students and teachers who have attended our workshops!
