Today, most banish pubic hair, but moons ago we carfted stylish wigs to brighten up our bush. Last month we joined Guerilla Science to celebrate the muff in sparkling style, as part of their Sex, Drugs and Rock ‘n’ Roll themed weekend at Secret Garden Party.
Back by popular demand: our soft-circuit workshop at the V&A.
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 embedding electronics into a cushion provided, but feel free to bring your own textiles or garments to embed the circuit into if you wish.

Join us for a session of Ten Minute Tutorials on Wednesday 15th May, 7-9pm at the Centre for Creative Collaboration.
Tutorials will vary in level, but you don’t need to have prior experience or knowledge of the topics to attend. These are in a presentation format, rather than a workshop. Feel free to bring a laptop or a note pad. Come along and learn something new, and/or meet like-minded women.
As our innaugural TMT! session, we’ll host 3 tutorial presentations of ten minutes each. After presentations and a break for refreshments, we’ll show screenings of online tuts, how-to’s and resources covering a range of topics.
