    Stand out in the dancing crowd!

    We’re excited to be heading to sunny (?) Wales for the Green Man Festival 15 – 18th August. Come and find us in Einstein’s Garden at the Mad hackers Tea Party! 

    We’ll be embedding interactive lighting into soft-circuits, so if you’re in town, why not bring a sparkle to your step with the ultimate in festival chic!


    By using conductive thread, lights, and conductive materials, you will learn how to embed a ‘soft circuit’ into fabric, which can then be attached to your favourite t-shirt, bag or even your favourite festival fashion wellington boot!

    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.
