    Bring a sparkle to your sofa and learn to make your cushions light up when you squeeze or rattle them.

    By using conductive thread, LEDs, and E-textiles, you will learn how to build a ‘soft circuit’ into a cushion, and make your interiors interactive. The workshop will lead you through numberswiki.com embedding electronics into a cushion provided, but feel free to bring your own textiles or garments to embed the circuit into if you wish.

  3. Navigate Your Neuron! @ Barbican Brain Waves Weekender…

    MzTEK is participating on the Barbican Weekender this 2 & 3 March, delivering the positively buzzing soft-circuit workshop Navigate Your Neuron!

    Use soft-circuit electronics to make a wearable interactive neuron glove that lights up the Axon and buzzes at the Presynaptic Terminals when you stimulate the Dendrites.

    This workshop maps a neuron’s main components along an arm length glove, and uses electricity to send the signal from a touch sensor on the finger, up the arm via some lights to a buzzer in the elbow.

    The workshops are free and open to all, and will run for 2 hours on both days.  We recommend you come and sign up early on the day to avoid disappointment.

  4. Soft-Circuit Intro At Norwich Arts Centre

    Especially for all you crafty techies in Norwich!

    To celebrate the final day of our exhibition at Norwich Arts Centre, we are giving an introduction to soft-circuits on Saturday 9 March.  Come and make a fabric patch, or sample, that lights up when you move or press a button. You can attached your patch to garments or a bag for the ultimate in fashion accessories.

    By using conductive thread, LEDs, and conductive materials, come and learn how to embed a ‘soft-circuit’ into fabric.

    You will make a patch that can then be sewn or stuck using Velcro to your favourite t-shirt, bag or even your hat!  Alternatively, bring your own fabric or garment to sew the circuit onto directly.
