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.

Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement. It’s a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning.
It’s free, but make sure you register here to attend.
Some (slightly dodgy) pics (from my rubbish camera) from the soft-circuit synth workshop on the 30th March. The workshop was held aboard the the awesome MS Stubnitz as part of the Music Hackspace Hackship event, a one day festival of musical hacking and contemporary sonic arts.
