The Fabricademy Lesson Collection is about creating a bridge between fabrics and electronics. Consisting of various types of projects, these lessons can be used to create an understanding of basic e-textile concepts. At the same time this collection will be a gateway into becoming familiar with terms and techniques used in advanced e-textiles to peak your interest.

About Oyedotun (Oye)
I like to consider myself as a product designer. I studied mechanical engineering and applied the principles of engineering into the things I like. Currently I teach in the 3D Experience Lab’s Fabricademy node working in digital fabrication, textiles, fabric science, and electronics.
Fabricademy is a transdisciplinary course offered by the Fab Foundation that focuses on the development of new technologies applied in the textile industry, in its broad range of applications, from the fashion industry to the upcoming wearable market. The two phase program will last 6 months, with approximately 3 months of seminars and learning modules and three months focusing on individual in depth applied project research. Fabricademy offers a decentralized rather than isolated educational model: students learn in local workgroups, with peers, mentors, and machines, which are then connected globally by content sharing and video for interactive classes. The individual labs are supported and supervised regionally by supernode sites with more advanced capabilities, expertise, and inventories.
