1. Merkins & Gherkins

    Yes, you read right! MzTEK will be making interactive merkins as part of the Guerilla Science tent themed Sex, Drugs & Rock’n’Roll, at this years Secret Garden Party !

    Why not come along and embellishing your merkin, whilst you munch on a gherkin (provided).


    We’ll be making merkins that light up when you shimmy, by embedding lights into fabrics using conductive thread and conductive trinkets.
