MzTEK and the Music Hackspace invite all you techie women (and women who
want to get techie) to join us for a one day workshop where you will learn
to make one of the instruments from the project, the Beatbox t-shirt!

This last summer we worked with Guerilla Science (
http://guerillascience.co.uk/), and KOBAKANT (http://www.kobakant.at/) to
bring a fantastic Hacked Human Orchestra to Wilderness and Shambala
festivals, making wearable instruments with festival-goers that created the
most awesome music ever!

Creating soft circuits with conductive fabric, conductive thread and an
array of electronic components, people turned their t-shirts into
synthesizers, screechers and recorders.

On this occasion the Beatbox t-shirt arrives to the London Music Hackspace (
http://musichackspace.org/), a place for artists, innovators, entrepreneurs
and hobbyists passionate about music and technology.

In this workshop we will hack a small re-recordable devise, discard the
hard wires and replace them with conductive fabric and thread, and learn
e-textile techniques to make soft circuit buttons to embed the devise into
a t-shirt or textile. We will provide a standard t-shirt, but feel free to
bring a fabric patch, hat or bag etc, to use instead.

This would make a funky Xmas prezzie!

This workshop is perfect for someone wanting to learn the basics of how to
create a soft circuit, but also for those wanting to work with electronics
in a slightly different way. T-shirts will be provided but please feel free
to bring along your own garment to adorn as well!
