Switchcraft, Independent Classes for Middle School Age Students – League of NH Craftsmen Gallery, Meredith

April 22, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join us at the League of NH Craftsmen – is excited to partner with artist Deb
Fairchild to host a series of classes for Middle School age children.
SWITCHcraft will consist of 6 independent classes designed for Middle School age students.
The series will explore art and craft techniques using a variety of materials. Students will start
with the introduction to soft circuits, using craft/art materials (such as paper, fabric, beads, jump
rings) and electronic components (such as conductive tape or thread, switches, resistors).
Subsequent sessions will introduce more complex soft circuit techniques and construction
techniques that can be modified to add lights and/or sound effects.

Sessions will be designed to stand alone. Attend the session(s) that intrigues you or attend all
sessions and work towards designing your own projects!

the NH Council on the Arts. After completing her Master’s in Education in 2020 she developed a
