Armor in Application

Medieval and Renaissance armor is iconic – evoking power, virtue and nostalgia. Armor’s fundamental purpose, however, was to protect the wearer, and armor evolved through the centuries to meet challenges found on battlefields and in tournaments. Knights and other men at arms trained specific techniques to best utilize their armor, and to overcome armor worn by others. These techniques were preserved in manuscripts written to aid in the instruction of these fighters.

Today, modern martial artists are reviving these techniques, studying historical fight manuals and using replicas of historical weapons and suits of armor. Join Douglas Wagner, Denver curator of the Age of Armor exhibition, and other members of the Rocky Mountain Swordplay Guild - a Denver-area school practicing historical European martial arts, as they demonstrate a selection of armored combat techniques and offer insights into the historical context surrounding them.

Inputs: Responsive Materials

In this 4-week class, students will learn the basics of tapestry weaving, creating woven switches, and soft circuits. Students will design and weave their own tapestry woven with conductive yarn, and use it to control LEDs.

Students will create small experiments in this class, culminating in a finished tapestry, with conductive yarns woven throughout, that can control up to 10 LEDs. Students do not need to have any prior technical knowledge, although any experience with weaving or electronic textiles will be helpful, but not required. This is a beginner lever class that will introduce students to tapestry weaving techniques, different woven switches, and how to create soft circuits.

 

Timeline:

Class 1: Intro to soft circuits and LEDS. Students will create a simple soft circuit with an LED, a soft switch, and a battery.

Class 2: Intro to tapestry weaving. Students will learn several different tapestry weaving techniques.

Class 3: Weaving our switches. This week the focus will be on weaving our tapestries, and integrating conductive yarns to create soft switches.

Class 4: Creating our circuits. This week will focus on stitching the soft circuits, and connecting our weavings to the circuits.

 

Materials: Some materials will be provided and are reflected in a $16 materials fee included in the pricing for this class. Students will purchase the remainder of materials on their own.
