Chi-TEK Workshop Festival for Women

A day of introductory techy workshops for women

MzTEK has teamed up with our friends at School of Everything to bring you a day of techy tinkering.

Workshops include Shiver My Tea Cups, Make-a-Mic & Soft Circuit Ghosts. The day will be structured for you to chose 3x 1hour 30mins workshops to attend throughout day. Spend the day picking up skills in Arduino, soldering, noise making, sensors & more!

No experience necessary – just enthusiasm for tech, and tea!

This workshop is part of the MzTEK project Chi-TEK, a celebration of women working in arts and technology, and offers a tongue in cheek take on what women can really achieve around a kitchen table.
