Make:Shift:Do event in Edinburgh 28/29th Oct 2016

Crafts Council’s Make:Shift:Do nation-wide events in October:

For Make:Shift:Do event Anarkik3D is collaborating with colleagues at Napier University’s Fabrication Studio (School of Arts & Creative Industries) to give two workshops on 28th and 29th October. The skills and knowledge we have between the 4 of us running the workshops will make this a unique opportunity to try your hand at the following processes:
~ digital 3D modelling (using award-winning haptic Anarkik3D Design)
~ see your design being 3D-printed in temperature-responsive material (2 Ultimaker2 3D printers)
~ work with optical fibre and ways of drawing with light
~ explore interesting ways to make your novel creations interactive and come alive with light using Arduino microelectronic components.

The 4 of us had our meeting to clarify the programme for the workshops on both days and the mix of technology, materials and processes provides the attendees with the potential to create some very interesting and exciting ideas. The workshops will give a good taster of the 4 areas with sufficient information and experience to take the ideas generated further into making and design practice.

The 2 workshops are suitable for designer-makers, applied artists and all enthusiasts with an interest in crafting with new technologies and responsive materials! There will be an exhibition of work at the end of the day, and lunchtime tours of the design studios at Napier.
When: 28th & 29th Oct, 10.00 – 17.00, lunch break 13.00 – 14.30
Where: The Glassroom, Napier University’s Merchiston Campus, 10 Colinton Road, Edinburgh EH10 5DT
Workshops are £10 (to cover materials) and places limited to 15 people each day. Please book either via the Napier On-Line Store or…/makeshiftdo-at-the-glassr….

Ann Marie Shillito, CEO of Anarkik3D will also be giving a short presentation at Make Shift Conference, 11th Nov in Manchester.
