Get to grips with coding, take an introduction to the world of making, and explore some of Manchester’s best home-grown creative tech. Join MAKE STUFF at Fred Aldous for a free day of drop-in workshops including:
Soldering: Hone your soldering skills with MAKE STUFF’s LED-tastic skill badge kit
Arduino: Learn the Arduino basics, and how to apply it in creative contexts
3D Printing: Explore the possibilities of 3D printing, and 3D scan your head (or other appendages)
Wearable Tech: Create sewn-circuits using conductive thread (and more LEDs)
Plus check out projects and prototypes developed at MadLab, like Gemma May Latham’s PatternCraft - an analogue-to-digital punchcard reader and a base for developing interactive projects, and Chris Ball’s Laser Harp - an Arduino-based MIDI laser harp that uses low-power lasers.
MAKE STUFF is brought to you by MadLab, the UK’s most active makerspace. MadLab supports public experimentation and exciting projects in the realm of science, art, culture, and emerging technologies.
